How can dating affect custody decision
As collaborative lawyer and family mediator Katherine Eisold Miller, partner at The Miller Law Group, wrote for the Huffington Post, adultery is "unlikely to affect a custody determination so long as the wayward spouse has not carried on the relationship in front of the children or exposed them to inappropriate people or situations during the course of the affair."Indeed: It's when the unfaithful spouse starts wanting their boyfriend or girlfriend to be a presence in their child's life that custody battles can get tricky, as Eric Broder, a family law attorney and partner at Broder & Orland LLC in Westport, CT, tells Romper. Naturally, the character of the "other" woman or man is a common concern for parents seeking primary custody, Broder explains, which is completely understandable: If your husband cheated, you'd probably have some less-than-positive feelings about his new flame right off the bat..."If it's supposed to be the father's time with the child, you don't want him bringing his flavor of the week around," Broder says. and then you're supposed to be okay with letting your babies hang out with this new person who broke up your marriage?There can be complications if ICE initiates deportation proceedings against the parent in the future, but you should not fear a child custody case in itself.
The demise of many a relationship and marriage comes about, when one person in the relationship finds out that their spouse has been cheating on them and committing adultery.Other states show even up to heavy favoritism towards the faithful spouse, when determining the separation of assets and custody in a divorce.Nowadays, adultery is not the marriage-ender it historically was.However, California takes it one step further and actually codifies this policy into its custody law.The law simply and clearly states the following: “The immigration status of a parent, legal guardian, or relative shall not disqualify the parent, legal guardian, or relative from receiving custody.” Instead, the law requires courts to base custody decisions on best interests of the child.
