The three Bloomfield Hills children caught up in a custody dispute that made international headlines have successfully reunited with their father, and have been living with him since Aug. 13, according to Oakland County Circuit Court records.
The children, ages 9, 11, and 14, underwent a court-ordered five day intensive therapy treatment designed to treat parental alienation in mid August and are now residing with their father, Omer Tsimhoni, his second wife, and their young half brother.
The court file on that matter is sealed and it is not clear where the therapy – considered controversial by some – took place and who conducted it. The intensive treatment is rare – only a handful of firms provide it – and expensive, costing as much as $40,000. Proponents say it is a way to end high conflict custody disputes and ensure that children have relationships with both parents. Critics say it doesn’t do enough to protect children from parents who may, indeed, be abusive.
