Who the child lives with after a divorce always creates tension and sometimes the parents don’t realise the emotional impact that this has on the child? Trying to reduce the tension and reach an agreement is ultimately our goal at Chiba Attorneys
Previously, women were recognised as the primary care givers for the child from birth, while the men worked and financially provided for the family thus in a divorce scenario the child resided with the mother. However now, Courts have started to recognise that the father may be equally able to fulfil the role of mother and vice versa. As mentioned before the main objective of the court is looking at the best interest of the child.
