Chicago Mom Loses Custody of Son Because She's Unvaccinated — But Then Judge Withdraws Decision

A Chicago mother who hoped to regain shared custody of her 11-year-old son following a judge’s recent ruling has been successful.

During an Aug. 10 child support hearing with her ex-husband, “one of the first thingsthe judge asked Rebecca Firlit about was her vaccination status, the mother told told the Chicago Sun-Times.

Firlit, who was surprised by the question, told the outlet that she’shad adverse reactions to vaccines in the past and was advised not to get vaccinated by my doctor.Her ex-husband, from whom she has been divorced for seven years, has been vaccinated.

Dopo, she recalled asking the judge how the question related to the hearing, which was supposed to beabout expenses and child supportand said she was told, “I am the judge, and I make the decisions for your case.

The judge then ruled that until Firlit got vaccinated, she would not be allowed to see her son — a decision that appeared to be the first time a parent has been denied custody for not being vaccinated, secondo Il Washington Post.

A court spokesperson says they cannot comment on pending or impending cases, but according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, the judge on Monday vacated his original orderbased on the absence of a pleading or hearing on serious endangerment.

I miss my son more than anything. It’s been very difficult,” the Chicago mother, who had appealed the initial decision, previously said in an interview with VOLPE 32 Notizia.

It had nothing to do with what we were talking about,” she added of the ruling. “[Il giudice] was placing his views on me. And taking my son away from me.

Her attorney also argued that the judge’s decision exceeded his jurisdiction,” per the Fox station.

An attorney representing the Chicago woman’s ex-husband said that while they did not expect the question to be asked, they supported the initial ruling.

There are children who have died because of COVID,” Jeffery M. Leving told Fox 32 Notizia. “I think every child should be safe. And I agree that the mother should be vaccinated.

Although being apart from her son is difficult, Firlit hopes to be reunited with him soon.

I feel like this will resonate with people because this is how things will go if we don’t speak up. Dividing families, taking children from their parents, we have to speak out to make sure this is not the new thing,” lei ha detto Chicago Sun-Times. “Sfortunatamente, I had to be the first person that this happened to, but parents aren’t going to stand for that.
