Sample of Successes and Cases Involving Child Custody and Visitation
Mr. Sartipi was lead counsel in a paternity case wherein he represented the father of a newborn baby. When Mother became pregnant she advised Father that she would be placing the child up for adoption against the Father’s wishes. Prior to giving birth, Mother selected the prospective adoptive parents and ceased all contact with Father. Just after the birth of the child, Mother placed the child with the prospective adoptive parents. Shortly thereafter, Father hired Mr. Sartipi, who appeared ex parte to request genetic testing to confirm the paternity of the child. When the genetic testing confirmed Father’s paternity, he went ex parte to secure sole legal and custody of the child. Successful at the ex parte, Father picked up his child from the home of the prospective adoptive parents that day and continues to be the child’s primary custodian.
