The Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving, Ltd.: Purported Dad Wins Court Order Restraining Mom From Circumcising Infant

Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

CHICAGO, Sept. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- DuPage County Judge McJoynt today granted an emergency restraining order to Richard Tranchida through his family law attorneys, Jeffery M. Leving and William Dowling, against Alana Lynn Muschong from obtaining a circumcision for the infant child born late Friday evening, September 17, 2010.

Infant circumcision is a very controversial and emotionally charged topic over-ladened with social, cultural and religious factors. While many doctors try to avoid controversy by appearing neutral, more health professionals are challenging the perceived necessity of routine infant circumcision. The American Academy of Pediatrics reports that the benefits of circumcision are not significant enough to recommend circumcision as a routine procedure and that circumcision is not medically necessary.

"Our client believes that there is no medical emergency or necessity which would warrant the mother to direct a circumcision procedure to be performed on the child at the present time. Valid consent from both parents is needed before any decisions on any procedures are performed. In addition, we need to consider the infant's best interest and our current understanding of bioethics and infant rights should be taken into consideration," said Jeffery Leving (http://dadsrights.com).

This case is set for further hearing in front of Judge McJoynt on September 29, 2010 at 9:30AM at 505 County Farm Road in Wheaton, Illinois.
