Slovak court refuses to grant Boórová custody over her children

Slovak citizen Ivana Boórová, whose children were taken into care by British social services when they lived in Britain and whose case received widespread publicity in the Slovak media last year, has tried unsuccessfully to regain custody of the two boys via the Slovak courts.

Slovak citizen Ivana Boórová, whose children were taken into care by British social services when they lived in Britain and whose case received widespread publicity in the Slovak media last year, has tried unsuccessfully to regain custody of the two boys via the Slovak courts.

The district court in Dunajská Streda refused her request to be granted temporary custody. Her sons are currently living with their grandmother, Eleonóra Študencová, the TASR newswire wrote. The mother had sought a preliminary injunction granting her custody and setting alimony payments and frequency of contact for their father. However, the court ruled, according to the spokesman of the Regional Court in Trnava, that Boórová had not proved that her life conditions had changed – apart from her moving to Slovakia – so that she could take care of her two sons. She did not document her living conditions, employment, or how she planned to take care of her children, the spokesperson said. No serious facts documenting a change in her situation were filed, the court concluded. A new custody trial will take place after Boórová and her husband get divorced.
