General Hospital Spoilers: Lulu Spencer Has Decided To Fight For Full Custody Of Her Daughter
— SOS/CTS/HH (@SoapOperaSpy) January 23, 2020
Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) has decided to preemptively strike and fight for full custody of Charlotte before Valentin has a chance to make good on his previous threat of fighting her for full custody! Even though Valentin finally has made bail, she knows it is in the police records that he tried to snatch Charlotte and run off with her, and that is a strike against him. He cited neglect on Lulu’s part when Charlotte was kidnapped by Cassandra Pierce, (Jessica Tuck) and also neglect when Charlotte was left on the pier by herself with Rocco Falconeri (O’Neill Monahan) and she tried to make her “secret bodyguard” appear by jumping in the water! Lulu really tore into her brother Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) over that one!
GH Spoilers: Will Valentin Cassadine Try To Run Off With Charlotte Cassadine Again?
How will Valentin respond to this court order? Will he try to snatch Charlotte and run off again? It would be in his best interests not to, because then he could be charged with another crime and his bail would be revoked. Besides, what kind of life would he be able to give Charlotte on the run? The court could freeze his accounts and he wouldn’t have any finances and it would not only be dangerous for Charlotte, it would be just plain stupid! He would have to change his identity and likely hers as well, and if he changes his identity how can he fight Nikolas for the Cassadine estate?
Nikolas is already claiming that Valentin isn’t really a Cassadine because while Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) was his mother, Mikkos Cassadine (John Colicos) isn’t his father! Valentin would have to get DNA testing to prove he is a Cassadine (and possibly have to fake the results) and that could mess things up big time if he had to prove he is Charlotte’s birth father as a result of the custody hearing! It is just simply NOT a good idea for Valentin to go on the run, and he may have actually realized it when he told her to go home with Lulu the night that he was arrested.
Valentin Cassadine Will Have Martin Gray Represent Him In Family Court Too
More than likely Valentin will have Attorney Martin Gray (Michael E. Knight) represent him in family court too – he has a lot at stake. In order to prove himself a fit father and be able to provide Charlotte a good home, he has to retain his position as a Cassadine heir and beat the charges he has been charged with. All of the goals have to be achieved for him to retain even split custody of Charlotte, and so it behooves him to have Martin handle it all!
