Mrs Mary Cedric Pinto vs Mr Cedric Francis Pinto & Anr

Bombay HC

10/09/2009

CRIMINAL WRIT PETITION NO. 353 OF 2008

About/from the judgment:

The Act of disturbing custody of the minors after every one month will cause mental trauma to the minor children!

 

The Sessions Court thought that it is in the interests of the minors that they remain in custody of their parents every alternate month. Such approach, to say the least, is shocking. The learned Sessions Judge has not at all considered the effect of this arrangement on the minors. The Act of disturbing custody of the minors after every one month will cause mental trauma to the minor children. The minor children have already suffered because of the attitude adopted by the parents of not settling the disputes atleast for the sake of children. In a case where there is a dispute between the parents over the custody of minor children, the custody has to be retained with one of the parents with visitation rights and/or right to have temporary custody for few days reserved in favour of the other parent. The arrangement which is made by the impugned order is certainly not in the interests of the minors and by such arrangement, the minors are bound to suffer.
