Family Law Case Summary – A.G. v. C.S.

On behalf of Furr & Cohen, P.A. posted in News on Friday, May 6, 2016.

In a mother’s appeals from an order awarding sole custody of her children to father, the order is affirmed where: 1) the court based its order on the children’s best interests; 2) there were no prejudicial evidentiary rulings; 3) a continuance during trial was properly denied; 4) there was no cumulative error; and 5) the doctrine of implied findings applies in this case where the parties did not request a statement of decision, the court did not prepare one, and the settled statement used by the parties does not contain an express statement by the trial court that it complied with the procedures required for adopting a statement of decision and that the settled statement serves as the court’s statement of decision.
