Custody Battle Strong: Its not about you

13 Jun

In my years as a practicing family law attorney, not once have I seen a case been truly litigated for the benefit of the minor children involved. It was best said by a Minnesota judge: 

“Your children have come into this world because of the two of you.  Perhaps you two made lousy choices as to whom you decided to be the other parent.  if so, that is your problem and your fault.  

No matter what you think of the other party-or what your family thinks of the other party-these children are one-half of each of you.  Remember that, because every time you tell your child what an “idiot” his father is, or what a “fool” his mother is, or how bad the absent parent is, or what terrible things that person has done, you are telling the child half of him is bad.

That is an unforgiveable thing to do to a child.  That is not love.  That is possession.  If you do that to your children, you will destroy them as surely as if you had cut them into pieces, because that is what you are doing to their emotions. 

I sincerely hope that you do not do that to your children.  Think more about your children and less about yourselves, and make your a selfless kind of love, not foolish or selfish, or your children will suffer.” 

Judge Michael Haas, 2001

I was recently presented with a custody declaration and could not believe how many personal accusations the declaration contained.  While yes, perhaps that person was not the best partner to you, that does not mean they are not a good parent.  

Here at the C. BRADFORD LAW FIRM, we believe in the children.  We never allow such unprofessional, ridiculous and outlandish statements to come through in our moving papers or declarations.  We will put your child(ren) first.
