A transcript says a 9-year-old boy at
the center of an international custody battle has told his
psychologist he wants to stay with his stepfamily in Brazil rather
than return to New Jersey with his biological father.
Lawyers for the Brazilian family seeking custody of Sean Goldman
on Wednesday released the transcript of a psychologist's interview
with him. In the transcript, he tells the psychologist if he's sent
back to Tinton Falls he'll "break down totally."
In 2004, Sean's mother took him for a vacation to her native
Brazil and never returned. She divorced David Goldman and married a
Rio de Janeiro lawyer. Goldman is seeking custody.
