Earlier in the year Mr. Poole scored a big victory when he obtained sole custody for a primary caregiver father who was being forced out of his child’s life by an absentee biological mother. The father had taken care of his son for over ten years when the mother decided to pick up the boy from school and take him home without the father’s permission. The father felt he had no power to stop this under the law, but he didn’t give up hope, and neither did Les.
