What works for a baby cannot work for a child or a high school. A child may need different environments to thrive at different stages of life, so that one home better suited than another. If you can prove to the court that the child`s needs have changed, you may have reason to change custody. If you need to prepare this order, you must complete the results and order after listening (form FL-340) and custody and visitation (parental leave) (form FL-341). You may also need other backup and visit forms such as FL-341 (A), FL-341 (B), FL-341 (C), FL-341 (D) or FL-341 (E). And if there were other orders, such as child care, those forms must be filled out and attached. The difficulty of the majority opinion for me is that it recites the defendant`s complaints, which the majority considers to be in poor taste, immoral or even illegal, and says that this evidence supports factual findings that permit a change of guard. There is virtually no time for these acts of the accused to have affected the two children. The test should be the impact of the action on children and not on their support.
I think the evidence simply shows that the accused is a practising homosexual without harming children. I do not think we should allow a change in custody to evidence that simply shows that the accused is a practising homosexual. Friedrich then appealed the court`s decision to the Court of Appeal. The Court of Appeal did not accept the court and set aside its decision to give Carol custody of the boys. Carol then appealed to the Supreme Court of North Carolina, where the Court of Appeals decision was overturned. This meant that the original court order remained in effect. Third, it is important to see if the change is in the best interests of the child. At the end of the day, this is often the deciding factor. The court made its original decision by balancing many factors in deciding what was in the best interests of the child. The decision to change or not to change custody rights will also be based on the court`s desire to do what is right for the children concerned. A court will consider why a parent would consider changing a child care regime before ordering a change to the current custody order. The court used the above facts and circumstances to establish that Friedrich “did not provide an appropriate and appropriate environment to educate the two minor children.” As a result, Carol was granted full and exclusive custody of the children because the court considered Frederick`s lifestyle to be a significant change in circumstances.
Fredrick received a proper visit with his children, but with the caveat that Tim could not be in the house when the boys went to see their father. The majority also relies on the finding of fact 53, in which the regional court speculated that their father`s homosexuality could cause emotional hardship to both children.
