There are many different ways child custody can come to mind, but I will be focusing on when a parent(s) passes.
It is hard to think about but it is something that has to be known how to handle. It is better to be prepared.
I will be introducing the facts of who should get a child from different websites I found.
I will include the slides of the different points found, visual aids, and site sources.
Who should get the child after a parent passes?
The first person who comes to the "plate" is the surviving parent.
If they allow someone else to obtain custody, then they may do so.
The court makes sure the person put in charge of the child next is able to handle the major responsibility put on them.
FaTHER'S RIGHTS COME FIRST
On this website, it talks about the father having parental rights over whoever may be in the mother's will.
The only ways the father may not get the child is if the court finds him unfit to be a father, he relinquishes his parental rights to someone else, or him and the mother were never legally married.
Court has final decision
On this webpage, one of the points it explains is that even if the parent(s) leave a will putting someone in charge of their child, it doesn’t mean they will get the child. They still have to have a final court decision on who gets the child, they make sure they go somewhere they will be handled the best.
If the parent(s) don't leave a will, the court will go through a process in finding a place for the child to go.
The feelings of the child are very important. This tragedy will have a massive impact on a child's life. They need support through this time. Sometimes, the parent can't provide the full support they need because they need to work on their own feelings about this.
The parent should have a reliable person around to help deal with the child and them.
Whoever may help deliver what all this means, you do need to talk about it with the child. Let them get their thoughts and feelings out.
Who do you think should get the child?
