DETROIT (WWJ) – After a standoff with police at her home in which the State Department of Human Services removed the child from the home, Maryanne Godboldo is slated to be reunited with her 13-year-old daughter Ariana on Friday.
On May 4th, Judge Lynne Pierce of Wayne County Juvenile Court ordered that the Godboldo/Hakim family and the Michigan Department of Human Services cooperate to take care of all outstanding matters before the court to secure the release of Ariana Godboldo by 11:00 am May 6 or face contempt charges by 1:30 pm Friday.
According to a release, Judge Pierce stated that the Michigan Department of Human Services should stop “stonewalling,” and facilitate the release of Ariana to the home of her aunt, Penny Godboldo, by Friday.
In the last 24 hours, the State Attorney General’s office filed a motion for a re-hearing on all matters before Judge Pierce; and before the State Court of Appeals in order to delay Ariana’s release.
“We fully expect to pick up Ariana today per Judge Pierce’s order,” Roger Fahrina, attorney for Ariana’s father Mubarak Hakim, said in a release.
Ariana has been held under state care at The Hawthorn Center in Northville.
