STJ Process
« on: March 29, 2012, 02:27:27 PM »
Can anyone shed some details of an appeal to this level? Has anyone had their case go there before?

Let me know

Devon,
I wrote this article last year. I doubt it answers all of your questions, but I'm sure it will help.

Look at the Kelvin Birotte and Francois Larivee cases and you will see how the STJ usually handles these Hague abduction cases. Unfortunately they sit on these appeals for years. STJ is also the home of Judge Nancy Andrighi, who unfortunately has a history of ignoring the Hague Convention and pressuring the left-behind parent into mediation/arbitration to resolve the case, rather than follow the law and uphold the return order from the lower courts.

Andrighi should look at this case differently. The abductor is more American than Brazilian and her primary, if not only, language is English.
