A mother will finally be reunited with her daughter after years of legal battles. W.A. made history by becoming the first woman to win a paternity case in the state of Colorado. W.A. was in a committed relationship with L.A. for several years and the two had a daughter together. In 2009 they decided to separate, but L.A. took the young girl back to her home country of Norway. Unaware of the move, W.A. did not have time to file the paperwork to keep her daughter in the country with her.
Although the legal system was working against her for years, W.A. has finally won her case. It is the first time that a woman has been able to file a paternity lawsuit as the non-custodial parent. Her attorney successfully argued that a woman has the same rights as a man to file a paternity suit when it comes to child custody. Do you want to file a paternity action in the state of Florida?
