CHILD CUSTODY | Gammon v. Gammon
Evidence was sufficient to establish that mother's medical beliefs were significantly unorthodox, and thus father was appropriately awarded sole decision making authority over their children's medical treatment and selection of health care providers; mother rejected western medicine as a failure, believed she was a ‘healer‘ who could heal ailments by moving her hands over the body, believed she directly communicated with God to heal others, canceled her own health insurance, treated their children with oils despite children's and father's objections, declined to vaccinate their children against father's wishes, and prevented father from taking their children to the doctor.?
No. WD 79869 (Missouri Court of Appeals, Western District, September 19, 2017)
