Florida Mom Seeks Custody of Son, Says Father is Virus Risk
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A Florida mother is asking a judge to allow her to keep custody of her 2-year-old son during the pandemic.
She claims the boy’s father and his fiance are at higher risk of contracting the coronavirus since they’re first-responders.
Tabatha Sams has asked a judge to let her keep custody of Dawson Thilmony until the pandemic-induced state of emergency in Florida is over.
The boy’s father, Stephen Thilmony, is a firefighter and emergency medicine technician, and his fiance is an emergency room nurse.
The father and mother were splitting custody of their son. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for next week.
