Fornerón and Daughter v. Argentina

Mr. Leonardo Aníbal Javier Fornerón's infant daughter was handed over by her mother for pre-adoptive care to a married couple without the consent of her biological father. The father had no access to the child. Despite numerous requests by Mr. Fornerón over a period of ten years, the State courts failed to order and implement a visiting regime. The Court found that the State violated the American Convention on Human Rights.
