LAWRENCE, Kan. — A Kansas woman’s fight for custody of her daughter inspired an effort to change Kansas law, and now her fight for her daughter is over.

FOX 4 has been telling you about Karen Williams story. When she lost custody of her daughter in her divorce proceedings, she was angry because it was all based on a case manager accusing her of “probable abuse.” Williams was never given a day in court to defend herself.

Williams took her case all the way to the Kansas Appellate Court, and the judges agreed with her that her constitutional right to a day in court was violated.

Thursday, Williams argued her case in front of a Douglas County judge. Williams says her ex-husband showed up to court drunk, and she now has won custody of her daughter Emily. However, she tells FOX 4 she will continue to fight to change laws governing case managers so this kind of thing doesn’t happen to anyone else.
