CHASING NEWSChasing News interviewed Ari Gourvitz after being contacted by the grandmother about the injustice she believed was happening to herself and her grandchild by the New Jersey Courts by transferring temporary custody from her to the illegal immigrant father. The grandmother alleged the child threatened to kill herself and deport the child to Ecuador after the mother died. She believed the father was/is unfit because he rarely saw the child, has never paid one cent in child support, and acts inappropriately. It was admitted that he snuck into the U.S. from Mexico 15 years ago and has stayed off the “grid” since then.  The Gourvitz firm appealed the interim decision to the Appellate Division that denied any relief and then to the Supreme Court that stayed the transfer of the child pending full review by the Appellate Division. The Appellate Division again denied any relief and a subsequent application was made to the Appellate Division. All relief was denied, but guidance was given to the Trial Court. The child was transferred to the father after he was released from jail on bail where he was being prosecuted for making terroristic threats against the grandmother.
