When Could Family Court Lose Jurisdiction?

You may wonder why I’m addressing this topic, since I’m the Founder and CEO of a Tech Company!

The thing is, this case for my children Sky and Ford is the dearest thing, not only to my heart, but also to the hearts of every member of my extensive, close knit family who live all over the world. Just in terms of cousins, I have 40 of them, spread out in other parts of the U.S. as well as in Italy, Germany, England, Australia, Dubai, and Iran. Keeping everybody updated is emotionally draining. I miss my children so much. So I’m using this blog as a kind of family communication system, keeping us all in the loop while we long for the day when I can be a huge part of my children’s lives once more.

A couple of weeks ago I was all set to appear before the Family Court Judge, Michèle Patrão Forsythe

Judge Forsythe was set to hear my Motion to Dismiss this case. We were supposed to have a hearing before Judge Forsythe, but she was unable to work today due to a sore throat. I wish Judge Forsythe well and a fast recovery and look forward to a hearing as soon as 7-10 days from today.

Fresh Hope

As you may well imagine, I am feeling fresh hope after hearing from my new attorneys, Brian Burke, Esq. and Jon Mersereau, Esq. that when Kristin and I reconciled for a month last fall between (August – September 2019) it may well have cancelled out everything that had happened previous to that time.

Kristin Golestan and I Reconciled For A Month in 2019

We went bowling together, ate meals together as a family, engaged in sexual relations daily as the married couple that we were. There was no separation between us.

Later, we decided, after all, to open a new chapter in our lives and to divorce. Here’s a copy of my Affidavit of Amir Golestan that we attached to the Motion to Dismiss for our divorce proceeding.

Thankfully, my attorney informs me that according to SC Family Court law, that when parties reconcile and engage in sexual relations…

This becomes a basis for consideration for dismissing the case. Now, considering that Kristin and I had truly reconciled, we believe that the law shows that this case might not even exist anymore. Kristin and I were potentially changing the outcome of our fates the moment we engaged in sexual relations last year.

In fact, my lawyers have assured me that if we were at the fourth day of the trial and a witness said that he or she had knowledge that a month ago we had reconciled or had sexual relations, the judge might very well have dismissed the case right there and state that he/she has no jurisdiction. I’m encouraged by this news, but of course respectfully await the Judge’s decision.
