Not only is there a warrant out for her arrest now, but recently (in the last couple of days) the father submitted a request that the mother not be allowed to use any funds to pay for legal costs that have been raised for her (there has been fundraising going on for months & all money is being held by the non-profit Doctors Opposing Circumcision). So, once again, this is showing that this case is not about what is in the best interest of the child, but about control of the child & his mother.
In addition to all of the above, the judge did not allow an ad litem (attorney/representative/something - I'm not sure who it would have been) someone be appointed for the child. This judge is not interested in the child's best interest. My understanding is that he has a culturoreligious bias which is as problematic as any other bias.
Lastly, my understanding of why this is being held up by a court is that it was agreed to when the parenting agreement was signed. It being the child's circumcision. Since the mother has changed her mind, that doesn't matter. It's an agreement, a contract & a changing of the mind does not change the contract.
Disgusting all around.
