Protecting Your Children Through Separation and After

Don’t allow a total stranger to make crucial decisions about your child

“AFTER FOURTEEN YEARS OF PRESIDING IN FAMILY COURT, ONE QUESTION HAS NEVER CEASED TO AMAZE ME: how can two parents who love their child allow a total stranger to make crucial decisions about their child’s living arrangements, health, education, extracurricular activities, vacation time and degree of contact with each parent? This question becomes more mind-boggling when one considers that the stranger making decisions is a judge, whose formal training is in the law, not in the family relations, child development, or psychology.” (Brownstone, 2009)
