Madrigal v Tellez, 2015 WL5174046, (WD Texas, 2015) [Necessary Expenses and Costs] [Denied] ] [Clearly inappropriate]
Attorneys fees denied. Court declined to shift
fees and costs to the mother because of (1) father’s conduct in, inter alia,
filing for divorce while the mother and children were in the United States,
which, in the Court’s view, meant] that the father came before the Court with
unclean hands; and (2) while the mother was not blameless, there was] no
indication that she had retained the Children in the United States with the
hope of obtaining a more favorable custody determination.
