Can the Child Testify in a Divorce?

Many times a parent wishes for the child to testify in their divorce, most often because they expect that the child will declare a wish to be with that parent.  In rare occasions, the court will call the child to the hearing; however, this is only after the court has exhausted all other opportunities for the facts to be found elsewhere.  The court is loathe to involve the child in a divorce because its primary goal is the health, safety, and welfare of the child.  In almost all cases, the information can be found elsewhere, and the best thing for the child is to minimize exposure to the divorce and its inherent conflicts.  Contact Sagaria Law today to schedule an initial consultation and learn more.
