Child Custody Attorney
A child custody attorney is one who serves under family law, but whom is considered a specialist, as their responsibilities serve a specific field. Child custody matters are difficult and can in some instances become an ugly tug of war where divorce is confronted. It is up to the child custody attorney to obey the law and the Children’s Act of South Africa to ensure that the child’s best interests are met and kept the priority throughout the entirety of any custody matter. It is important to understand that the child has rights as well as both the parents. An attorney is not going to take your child away and disregard your or the child’s rights. However, the law and the Children’s Act is there to ensure that in any event, where custody is surfaced, the child’s needs are met and cared for in accordance to what is best for the child, and not have the child placed in a situation that does not serve his or her over all wellbeing at the will of a parent, while the parent may think a particular situation is best for the child, it may not be.
