"the court of Appeal's judgment raises strong emotions on social media"
"the Man is sentenced for having abused their two sons – and he has not seen them in over four years. "
"Yet decides Svea court of appeal that the father should have sole custody of the children. This is because the mother is considered to have sabotaged their dealings."
"I am devastated and the children are terrified of what will happen now," says mother Frida. "
"In a conference room at the well-known lawyer Thomas Bodströms office in central Stockholm is Frida with a tome of paper that turned life upside down. "
"– the Whole life has fallen apart. Since the judgment came so dare to my oldest son not to go to school. They are terrified of what will happen now. It makes me absolutely devastated."
"What she has in front of them is a decision from the Svea court of appeal. Where the court of justice determined that her ex-husband to have sole custody of the two sons, twelve and eight years old. This is despite the fact that he in 2014, was sentenced to three months ' imprisonment for that struck the children."
"– the Boys do not want to be with him. They have not seen him for 4.5 years. When we had agreed umgängestillfällen so I have done everything to prepare and encourage them, but they have refused."
"Have lived only with the mother"
"Frida and the man separated 2011. The first years after the breakup, so was the sons of both her and the father. Since misshandelsdomen, however, they have exclusively lived with Frida."
"In the beginning of 2017 left the ex-husband filed a lawsuit in which he demanded that the sons would move to him. The district court rejected his request."
"It is this ruling which the court of appeal now unravels. In the judgment, which has aroused strong feelings on social media, write right: "
"”the Assessment of what is best for a child to be made with regard to their need of a close and good contact with both parents. According to the court of appeal is NN (the father's name, reds. note) the party that is best placed to meet this need”."
"Lawyer: ”A redress”"
"In the judgment is shown to the right see two main risks to children: the Danger that they are abused by the father, and the threat that the mother keeps them away from socializing with him. "
"the Current återfallsrisken so join the court of appeal to the district court's previous line. The lower court has assessed the danger as being small, partly because the man ”worked with himself and gone to therapy”. "
"the Probability that Frida would exclude the father from children's lives is far greater, according to the court. "
"”the Court of appeal makes the assessment that Frida has done everything she could to persuade the children to hang out with NN. Frida has referred to the fact that the children do not want to meet him. In a so crucial question that the children's relationship to a parent, it is not possible to assign control to the small children”."
"the Man is represented by a lawyer Shantu Wahlgren. She claims that Frida has a great impact on the children's attitude to their father. "
"– From the mother and her family, it has been painted a very negative image of my client. Against this background it is no wonder that they say that they don't want to meet him. "
"– It is a great responsibility on the mother to motivate the children. But she has not done. Instead, she has dedicated herself to umgängessabotage. It was found already in 2016. "
"The image parts, however, not Frida. "
"– All I want is my kids to have a safe and good upbringing. I can't force them to do something they don't want to."
"Shantu Wahlgren stated that the father reacted very positively when he was reached by the court of appeal's decision. "
"It is a vindication for him after several years of struggle," she says. "
" I think it is a well-motivated and well-written judgment, which focuses on the long-term best for the children. As small children, as it is the question if it has been difficult to realize the impact of being deprived of one of their parents."
"To appeal to the HD"
"Lawyer Thomas Bodström is frida's new representative. He is very critical of the judgment. "
" Normally, is usually enough to make guilty to one case of ill-treatment in order to lose visitation rights, but this makes the right a different assessment, despite the fact that it is a case of repeated crime. "
"" I have never seen anything like it in my entire career. "
"because of the great change that decision means in the boys' lives, the court of appeal decided that it should not apply in the interim, i.e. until the judgment has gained legal force. It means that the sons of the current situation will stay with Frida."
" We have already started to prepare the appeal to the Supreme court. It should be of great interest to obtain an indicative ruling in this case, " says Thomas Bodström."
"Aftonbladet has unsuccessfully sought hovrättsråden Joakim Zetterstedt and Christina Brobacke, which is decidedly the case. "
