By far the most complex, difficult, challenging and important issue during divorce proceedings is that of child custody. It is often the case that children of any age are exposed to pain and suffering that is no fault of theirs. In almost all cases, both parents want to retain custody of their child or children.
In the Indian system, the custody of children is decided by the Court of Guardians and Wards. The Court holds the welfare of children as the most important issue to be decided in proceedings where custody is being sought by both parties.
PERMANENT CUSTODY: After determining all the issues before it, the Court will grant custody of the children to one party.
INTERIM CUSTODY: While proceedings are still pending before the Court (or in other circumstances where a final determination has not been made), the Court can grant interim custody to one of the parties. Further, the Court has the power to grant interim custody of children to the other party during periods such as holidays and vacations.
VISITATION RIGHTS: Except in extremely rare circumstances, every parent has an unquestionable right to spend time with his or her children. Accordingly, it is the case that a parent who is not awarded custody of his or her child by the Court will still have the right to meet and spend time with his or her children. Reasonable visitation rights, allocating times, dates and locations, are ordered by the Court which allows the parent to maintain and develop their bond with his or her child.
