International child abduction remains an issue despite legislation

  • 0

In 2004, when Sean Goldman of Monmouth County was 4 years old, his mother, Bruna Bianchi, brought him to her native Brazil and subsequently announced she would not be returning to the United States with the boy. That is when Sean's father, David Goldman, launched what turned into a five-year fight to bring his son home. In 2008, Bianchi died in childbirth in Brazil and her parents declined to return Sean to his father. With the assistance of individuals such as Congressman Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Patricia Apy, who is an international family law attorney, Sean was returned to Monmouth County in September 2009. Sean, who is now 19, shared his story for the first time on August 8, 2019.
