Child Custody Lawyer Cape Town
A child custody lawyer Cape Town works under family law and the Children’s Act. Most often, child custody is a forefront issue in divorce. The first thing parents want to know is if they will get custody of their children. It should be noted that the custody of a child will be determined based 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 traumatic and emotional experience and a child custody lawyer will treat the case delicately. 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. Of course, there are also instances in which abuse is a factor and where a child expresses distaste for one parent there is usually cause. The best interests of the child is always treated as the priority.
