Yet again we would like to address the public as to who the real victims are regarding cases of child custody and divorce. Children are often misrepresented in court as parents try their utmost to outdo the other in bouts that verge on defamation of character. Often the children are the victims of serious issues within the family unit, particularly with evidence of parental alienation syndrome.
Because of problems regarding cases of child custody and divorce, there are to be reviews of the Child Care Act to ensure that children are adequately represented in court. Furthermore, more effort will be made to ensure that the conclusions following cases of child custody and divorce are made in the best interests of the children.
Some of the more detailed changes include the commissioning of the parental plan; a plan that outlines the parental rights and responsibilities as well as schedules for the parents to uphold. The revision will also decide whether or not parents should discuss proceedings with children. There will be a decision based on whether or not the children themselves will be represented in court, and who exactly should the representative be. There have been many questions raised as to whether or not a panel of experts should represent the children during every child custody case or every divorce case, without having to involve the Office of the Family Advocate.
The review hopes to also streamline the divorce and child custody process, making the affair simpler and quicker so as to not cause emotional and mental distress for the children who are exposed to a cold and hostile courtroom.
