Child Custody Attorney
A child custody attorney works under family law and the Children’s Act of South Africa. Most often, child custody is one of the most contested issue in divorce. The first thing parents want to know is who will get custody of their children. It should be well-known that the custody of a child will be decided grounded on the best interest of the child as described in the Children’s Act. Deciding permanent residence and custody of a child can be a distressing and sensitive experience for all parties involved. A child custody attorney will treat the case delicately And with compassion. With that said, it should be noted that a child has the right to express with which parent he/she wants to be placed. Again, the court will take the child’s wishes into consideration when determining what scenario or outcome works in the best interest of the child, noting also which patent is financially able and has the most stable environment. Of course, there are also instances in which accusations of abuse occur and this will have to be proven in court. The best interests of the child is always treated as the priority.
