On December 3, 2019, Ari H. Gourvitz, Esq., argued before the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, asking the Court to affirm the District Court’s Order for the return of two children, who were wrongfully retained in the United States by the Mother.  The Southern District of New York had previously ordered the children to return to Norway, and then Respondent-Mother appealed that decision to the
2nd Circuit Court of Appeals. The 2nd Circuit seven days later, and on December 10, 2019, affirmed the lower court’s decision, rejecting the Mother’s argument that one child, who has Hirschsprung’s Disease, and the other child who has a psychiatric condition, would face a grave risk of harm if treated in Norway rather than in the United States. The Court decided that the Mother had failed to establish at the time of trial that the medical care in Norway is so lacking as to pose a grave risk of harm to the children and, thus, affirmed the Southern District of New York’s decision.   Our firm originally posted about the District Court’s decision: https://www.gourvitz.com/blog/firm-receives-recognition-us-dept-of-state-bureau-consular-affairs/
