Grey's Anatomy Universe Wiki is a FANDOM TV Community. Or if the parents used a sperm donor? 4. THEN SHE WANTS CUSTUDY....... AND SHE WINS ???? Yes Arizona chested too but I think people for that Callie cheated well unless I missed the episode where they broke up when Arizona left. This was when Meredith Grey was called to the stand in support for Callie being sole parent which backfired by making the judge realize Sophia who is the daughter of two doctors who get called in to work often during off hours at random times requires a support system or "village" which exists in Seattle and not in New York. However, if the claims are true, there was an obvious lack of duty on the police's part. THAT IS NOT HOW ADOPTION WORKS! It really blowed my mind. Yeah. This was when Meredith Grey was called to the stand in support for Callie being sole parent which backfired by making the judge realize Sophia who is the daughter of two doctors who get called in to work often during off hours at random times requires a support system or "village" which exists in Seattle and not in New York. It's just not right how Arizona has treated Callie, but everyone wants to sit around and feel sorry for her when none of this would have even happened if Arizona would have never cheated. And the reason for Callie leaving is because she’s following her Gf to New York? Arizona ADOPTED Sophia, so even though she loves her just as much as Callie does she will never have that biological bond that mother and child have. Callie is a good mother, she should have gotten custody! Her relationship with Callie has NOTHING to do with her being Sofia's mother, except in that their relationship is how she ended up becoming Sofia's mother, before Sofia was born. They weren't together when Sofia was conceived. Additionally, Arizona is NOT the father. Or egg donor? I just honestly do not understand how it is possible that Arizona won & that she still has so much pent up anger against Callie. He's taken care of him his whole life. If they get divorced, does the non-bio parent have to give up custody of the child they both love and parented together? Mothers used to be preferred for sole custody, but that is no longer the case. As much as I wanted Callie to win the case, Meredith's statement backfired. If it was a man and a woman that is fighting for custody, the mother, as long as she is a good mother, is always preferred for custody. Or maybe the birth parent was pregnant by the sperm donor wants no involvement, but the birth parent has a significant other who wants to be involved and raised the baby. Open adoptions leave the option for birth parents to be involved, to be determined by the child's parents (and the child). I actually know someone in my work life who has three children. And yes, Sofia's adoption was a conventional adoption. During court it was proved that Callie spends more time with Sophia while Arizona goes to the clubs to play trivia. I dont think the adoption has much to do with it. Callie and Arizona broke up before Arizona left for Malawi. When she gave birth, her husband (by then, they were back together) signed the birth certificate and he's been A's dad his whole life. Authorities promised the father that his daughter would be safe in Kelly's custody and offered a police officer to stand guard as well. Once you've adopted a child, you have the same legal rights as any other parent, no matter if you adopted the child at the same time or one of you adopted the child at birth and one adopted the child later, or if one parent is the birth parent and another parent adopted the child later. That is plain simple. In the eyes of the law, they are EQUALLY the child's parents. The same amount her mother as Callie is. So I have just recently caught up with Greys Anatomy on hulu & the court ruling of the sole custody of Sophia has me mind blown. That's actually not true, in both cases. MICHAEL Long was granted custody of his daughter Sophie and her two brothers after she accused her mom’s fiancé of sexual abuse.. Court documents revealed Michael and Sophie communicated in code and used special words to let him know about the alleged abuse at her home in Texas.Here is more on the case that has taken the internet by storm. Callie is Sophia’s mother, Arizona is the “father”. 2. There Were no way Arizona deserved to have custudy.... She has been nothing but a terrible person all along. I just started watching again and I’m on this episode and didn’t Sophia get here because Callie cheated on Arizona when Arizona left to better her career? They were a train wreck together and the kid was just stuck in the middle. This "village" of people also happens to be some of the best doctors in the country, all of which care for Sofia a great amount and have been in her life from day one. She was adopted at the age of one by the woman who had been her mother since before she was born and raised her from the day she was born. From my understanding there was one key moment that determined the case. She got pregnant, but they stopped seeing each other. 3. THEY HAVE THE SAME LEGAL RIGHTS. 1. Take your favorite fandoms with you and never miss a beat. Legally, socially, and actually, she is Sofia's mother. After her first was born, she and her husband were separated. And not all adoptions (even in real life) involve the birth mother "disappearing." If two people have a bio child and then break up, do you think that only one parent should keep that child? While Sophie's father Michael Long has been granted custody, it is unclear whether the arrangement is temporary or permanent. They split up because Arizona didn't want kids, but she agreed to be Sofia's mother, legally adopted her, loved her, and was a regular part of her day-to-day life. Same as Callie. Arizona hired the damn lawyer and started this whole thing, but continues to blame everything on Callie being insistent that it's her fault even though she already won the freaking battle. He's got A's initials tattooed on him the same as the other two kids they have. Sophie, 9, is seen in a viral video posted by her biological father claiming her mother's fiancé sexually assaults her while her mother watches. for all these people saying that arizona is not sofia’s real mom because she adopted her; does that mean that meredith and derek are not zola’s real parents just because they adopted her ? During that separation, she started seeing another guy. The other parent can adopt the child and have the same legal rights. From my understanding there was one key moment that determined the case. THEN SHE CHEATS .... THEN SHE HIRES A LAWYER ? Dallas, Texas, Oct. 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- An Amicus Attorney in the viral “Stand with Sophie” custody case – a neutral attorney appointed by the court to represent the best interests of the children – strongly recommended the children’s mother Kelly Long be the sole conservator, according to court documents filed on August 19th, 2020. You have to see the Big picture please. DIDNT THEY SPLIT UP AT FIRST CAUSE ARIZONA DIDNT WANT KIDS ??? She is Sofia's mother. He was abusive to her and didn't want to be involved. After winning full custody of his nine-year-old daughter, Michael Long is being sued by the administrators of the #StandWithSophie campaign and other media outlets after being accused of fabricating stories about the level of abuse his little girl was forced to endure while under the custody of her biological mother. She is the one that ruined the relationship in the first place by CHEATING on Callie even though Callie did everything she could to support Arizona after her dismemberment. ‘Stand with Sophie’ girl, 9, filmed revealing sexual abuse by mom’s partner with secret code is reunited with her dad Lottie Tiplady-Bishop 11 Sep 2020, 13:57
