Iceland Child Custody Fight Lands in SDNY But Hague Process Too Slow So Fast Track

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, August 18 – Arnaldur Schram filed a U.S. Federal lawsuit for "the return of his six-year-old daughter E.Z. and his two-year-old son S.Z. were who, without [his] consent or acquiescence, wrongly retained from Iceland to New York by their mother, Tania Zarak."      

   On August 18, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

Judge Vyskocil said, given the stakes, she would expedite things, around the constraints of being Part 1 emergency judge. She ordered the mother to give the children's passports to her lawyer. 

 Although she has no jurisdiction over the third child in the family, now in Iceland, she asked the father to tell his lawyer if he intended to move at all.

Name(s) were said, but Inner City Press is sticking with the children's initials. The case will be heard in October.

It is Schram v. Zarak, 21-cv-6524 (Vyskocil)
