She’s a Bad Parent – How Can She Have Rights?

In Child Custody Issues, Parental Alienation, Strategy Issues on August 23, 2008 at 4:27 pm

This is the cry of many a father who is fighting to save his kids. Of those fathers who come to see me who want to take “full custody” or “primary custody” of their kids, many of them say things about their ex, like that.

I hear stories about moms who are prostitutes, drug abusers, alcoholics, negligent, abusive, mentally abusive, physically abusive, emotionally abusive. I have gone up against moms who hit engage in fights with their children that end up causing scars, both physical and emotional.

The sad fact is that these moms will still get some custody and/or visitation with their children.  The reason why is that even a bad mother, has a right to see her children.

And that goes for dads as well. Even terrible, horrible, abusive fathers, have a right to see their kids. The thing to remember, is that the parents right to share in raising their children is SUPERIOR to even the best interests of the child.

Even if every judge, every lawyer, every counselor says it is in the best interests of the child to not see their parent, that parent still has a right to a relationship with that kid, and a judge will order visitation.
