Bob Benson and Constance A. Harris successfully represented a father whose former spouse sought sole physical custody of the couple's three minor children.

The case was hotly contested and lasted three days.  The plaintiff-mother alleged that it was in the best interest of the minor children for her to have custody.  The plaintiff-mother based this allegation primarily on the children’s psychological evaluation.  After the conclusion of the evidence, the district court judge ruled that the psychological evaluations were faulty and that both parties were fit and proper to have custody of the minor children.

Constance A. Harris filed a motion in Guilford County to obtain custody on behalf of a mother of two minor children.  The defendant-father failed to return the minor children to the plaintiff-mother on her regularly scheduled visitation day.  At the conclusion of Constance’s evidence, the judge awarded an Order, which required the defendant- father return the children to the plaintiff-mother immediately.
