Eye On New York: On A Man’s Fight For His Son

NEW YORK (CBS 2) – When David Goldman’s five-year fight to bring his son, Sean, home from Brazil finally ended, it was an emotional reunion and return to Tinton Falls, N.J.

Sean had been taken there by Goldman’s wife, who quickly divorced him and married into a powerful Brazilian family. Even after she died, her family successfully blocked Sean’s return through a maze of legal maneuvers.

But in the end, an upper court decision gave David Goldman his son back.

CBS 2’s Don Dahler spoke with Goldman a few days ago to see how they’re doing and to talk about his new book about the ordeal, entitled “A Father’s Love.”

    Our own courts are to blame as well. They do not give fathers enough credit.
    I speculate that the unjust in our family court system exist because of possible corruption, money influence by womens rights groups and the Violence Against Women’s Act which much money is funneled into from our government and private industry including top corporate law firms and banks.
    It appears that a father is guilty until proven innocent.
    God Bless America.

    God only knows who he had to bribe (in Brazil) and how much it cost him. That rich family probably didn’t want the kid anymore.

    If only more dads were like David Goldman. It’s to bad that this country has demean fatherhood so much so that a lot of children are more or less fatherless. Hello, kids need Dad just as much as they need mom.
