CHICAGO, April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tragically, a loving Chicago father passed away leaving behind two wonderful children, a 2 year-old daughter and a 3 year-old son. These children had lived with their paternal grandparents from birth. The grandparents cared for these children. They had a close and loving relationship with them. When the parents were at work, they fed the children, took them for walks, took them to museums and parks, read to them and put them to bed.
Unexpectedly, after the father died, the mother kicked the grandparents to the curb, ending their relationship with the children at that time. The mother not only moved out of the grandparents' home with the children and without notice to the grandparents, but cut them off from the children. Although the grandparents provided the children with love and devotion, the mother would not let the grandparents visit with the children and would not even let the grandparents talk to them.
The grandparents then retained the Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving. Through the concerted efforts of Leving veteran litigators Richard H. Marcus and Arthur S. Kallow, the grandparents were quickly reconnected with their grandchildren. The attorneys pursued an even more aggressive strategy and won a landmark decision that provided the grandparents with alternate weekend grandparent time, holiday grandparent time, extended time during the summer with their grandchildren, and when the children begin to attend school then half of the grandchildren's time on winter break and on alternating spring breaks the children will be solely with their grandparents.
As a result of the this tough firm's caring and compassionate concern for these grandparents and their grandchildren, the grandparents now will continue to be a large part of their grandchildren's lives and they will again be able to provide love, care and nurturing to the great benefit of these children.
