Parents generally tell us that, with regard to their Custody matter in Court, they’d rather not have their child speak to a Judge or come to Court. While we understand that desire, it, unfortunately, isn’t realistic.
If a child is generally six years or older, he or she will speak with the Judge. Some judges actually will have a child younger than six years of age speak with the Judge, but that is rather unusual.
This presentation will give you some insight as to the process and enable you to speak with your child and perhaps reduce some fears the child might have. I hope you find it helpful.
