The children from a broken marriage are the ones going through the worst of time. They are unable to make sense of the things unfolding around, fervently wish for matters to normalize between their parents and on top of that they are asked to choose one of the parents to live with. Usually the mother gets the custody of the children aged 5 and less, the older children are asked for their opinion and the capability of the respective parents to provide a secure life and upbringing is considered by the court. During the divorce proceedings, the battle of child custody is often very complicated and stressful. Both the parties do not want to let go of their children and try their best to strengthen their case, while doing so, incriminating the other person of being incapable, irresponsible and coming up with all sorts of allegations.
Child custody matters for young kids, aged 5 or less, are rarely complicated. Only in the event that the mother has been very careless, is of unstable mind, or has a history of aversive behavior with the child, is she denied the custody rights.
