CHICAGO, April 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Immediately after the birth of his daughter, a good dad was prohibited from having any contact with her by an Order of Protection secured by the child's unwed mother. The father then called the Jeffery M. Leving Legal Team in Chicago desperate to have a relationship with his little girl, who he had been completely cut off from by this oppressive Court Order. Leving immediately put a fierce lineup of litigators in place to help this dad and his daughter with heavy hitters, Andrew Muchoney and Ashley Isaacson.
After swiftly designing a strategy, the decision was made not only to quickly get rid of the Order of Protection, but to go on the offensive and permanently establish this father's right to parent his daughter, and be a dad. Muchoney successfully fought to dismiss the Order of Protection that was prohibiting dad from having any contact with his child. The Judge ruled in dad's favor. Muchoney was also successful in persuading the Judge to put in place a Court-Ordered representative for the child who shared the view that good fathers, like this one, have every right to be involved in their children's lives. Isaacson closed the strategic circle against this mother's efforts to keep this good dad and his daughter apart, and convinced the Court to enter an Order to guarantee that this little girl would have regular parenting time with her father who is now part of her life.
Now, not only is dad involved in his daughter's life but so is his close-knit family, most especially the child's loving paternal grandparents. And the child has the critical paternal support network that was missing when this dad first desperately came to Leving for help.
Had this successful strategy not been implemented, this father would have continued in a downward spiral that would have forever separated him from his little girl.
This case is yet another testament to Leving's mission of justice for fathers – and justice for children, who should never be deprived of good fathers who are willing to fight to be a part of their children's lives.
Unfortunately, not all fathers are aware of their rights or the resources available to them in fighting for those rights. For more information on law and fatherhood, follow Leving's victories on Twitter @fathersmatter and Facebook.
