Mooradian's client, a young boy from El Salvador, had experienced years of poverty and threatened gang violence in his country of origin. Eventually, he and his mother fled to the United States seeking protection. The child had been abandoned by his father from an early age; the Defendant/Father had never provided emotional or financial support at any time.
Mooradian argued, pursuant to M.G.L. c. 119, §93M, that the Defendant/Father had permanently and irrevocably abandoned the child and that it was in the best interests of the child to remain in they United States with his mother. The Probate and Family Court judge, agreed and issued both a Judgment of Dependency and Special Findings of Fact and Rulings of Law which can be used to obtain Special Immigrant Juvenile Status and eventual Permanent Resident Status.
