Dismissed – 50B Domestic Violence Protective Order

Ms. Spidell defended a Greensboro client against a Domestic Violence Protective Order in Guilford County. The client’s girlfriend had taken out a restraining order in an attempt to end the relationship, because she had a new boyfriend. The judge, after hearing the evidence, dismissed the restraining order. The client was also in the process of obtaining United States Citizenship and any restraining order or criminal charges could hinder that process.

Victory – Child Custody Modification

Megan E. Spidell, family law attorney in Greensboro, was successful in arguing a child custody modification/ relocation case, in which her client wanted to relocate to Florida with the parties’ five minor children. Ms. Spidell successfully argued that due to the strong bond between the children and their mother, extended family available as support in Florida and a past history of domestic violence between the parents, it was in the best interest of the children to live in Florida with their mother rather than in North Carolina, where they have lived most of their lives.

Awarded Child Custody

Ms. Spidell represented a father of five children in Greensboro, whose wife had obtained two frivolous Domestic Violence Protective Orders and also taken out false assault charges against him. Ms. Spidell successfully argued that the father should be given custody and possession of the marital residence and the mother was permitted to have visitation and ordered to leave the residence. The father can now resume his normal life with his children, without fear of false allegations from his wife. Ms. Spidell also had both protective orders and the assault charges dismissed against him.

Emergency Order Obtained -Holiday Visitation Granted

Family law attorney Megan Spidell was successful in negotiating holiday visitation for three of her  Greensboro clients, just in time to get an Order for the Judge. Megan’s hard work and negotiation skills enabled three parents to spend Thanksgiving with their children this year, while simultaneously representing them in their ongoing custody disputes. Attorney Megan Spidell was successful in obtaining emergency child custody for a father in Guilford County this week. Ms. Spidell persuaded the Judge to enter an emergency Order, to protect the child from potential drug abuse within the mother’s home. The minor child is currently thriving in her father’s care.
