(Best Syndication News) The Goldman custody battle has been on the backburner for five years with little notice by the media, but the ordeal may be coming to a close soon with this final decision by the Brazilian courts. Yesterday Brazil’s Chief Justice ruled Sean Goldman must be returned to custody of David Goldman’s.

This is a relief to Goldman and others involved in the battle. Congressman Chris Smith of New Jersey said in a written statement that the boy should be home by the end of the week, barring another last minute deal. “He should be on a plane back to his home in the United States on Friday,” the 30 year member of the House of Representatives said.

Smith said that Goldman was smiling with glee over the ruling but added he will only be relieved when he and his son “are in the plane on their way to New Jersey, on their way home.”

The Hamilton New Jersey Congressional Representative praised the verdict of the Brazilian court. This “sweeping decision” was “very good news” Smith said. “Further frivolous and delaying motions and appeals by the da Silva family must stop.”

David’s wife, Bruna Bianchi Carneiro Ribeiro, took their son on what she called a vacation to her native Brazil. That was back on June 16th 2004. His wife and child were to be gone for two weeks, according to the “Bring Sean Home Foundation”.

After she arrived in Brazil she called her husband telling him the marriage was over and she was keeping Sean. Bruna demanded that David sign a custody order if he ever wanted to see his son again, but he didn’t. “I have never signed any papers granting Bruna custody of our son, Sean,” David said.

Bruna remarried and died during childbirth. Her new husband, João Paulo Lins e Silva, works for his father’s law firm. That firm has been able to block David’s attempts to reunite with his child. But this is likely to change with this high-court decision.
