Colombian Father Wins Return of Daughter

April 3, 2010

On April 2, 2010, the California Court of Appeal ruled in favor of Martin’s pro bono client in Ramirez v. Gutierrez-Carreno, No. D055115.  Martin represented a Colombian father whose wife never returned to Colombia after what was supposed to be a temporary visit to the United States with their 10-year old daughter.  The Court of Appeal affirmed an order directing the return of the daughter to Colombia pursuant to the Hague Convention on Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.
