Public motions filed raise more questions about the Fight for Veronica

Motions filed in the Fight for Veronica Motions filed in the Fight for Veronica

The fight for Baby Veronica continues in Oklahoma.

Court documents are sealed and a gag order is in effect, but the court motions are in public domain.

Several motions were filed Friday, for every party in this case.

One motion asks that any visitations between the Capobiancos and Veronica be stopped until additional hearings can take place.

Another motion was filed for a guardian ad-litem-for a separate party to represent Veronica. The Capobiancos have objected to this motion.

We reached out to a local family law lawyer Meg Horn from Wilson & Heyward, LLC, to get her opinion.

Horn said the Capobiancos are probably objecting because they want South Carolina's adoption decree to be enforced, not to dive into more custody disputes in Oklahoma. A guardian wouldn't be needed to enforce that South Carolina order, per the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act from 1997, or UCCJEA.

Judge Holli Wells also asked to be recused from the case on Friday.

Another judge will need to appointed before this fight can continue.
