9.60.70 Divorce proceedings: child access, child support
Due to the impact this has on children, I have placed this topic under Human Rights issues. Their Human Right to see both their parents regularly.
The greatest casualty in a divorce or separation situation is potentially the children involved. I direct all tribes offer the option for "joint custody" of children so that they can benefit from the upbringing of both parents. Children should never be treated as property or negotiated for as part of a financial settlement as if they are cattle.
If any parent uses child access or emotional blackmail as a regular bargaining chip in relation to disputed maintenance payments (whether it be amount, frequency or lateness thereof) I direct the guilty parent be either fined, ordered to attend classes on how to parent properly, ordered to seek psychiatric help, forced to undergo community service or forced to pay irrevocable sums into the child's education fund.
I also direct local tribal authorities provide legally minded mediators who can stop such problems in their tracks. Follow the Californian and Florida method where flow charts and diagrams tell separating parents what is expected of them and what "normal contact" means. On the other hand, both divorced parents should take part in the financial contribution of bringing up children. Wilfully defiant violators of maintenance/child support payments should have the monies taken from their payslips or other enforced means available under tribal law.
Many such problems can be eliminated if a fair prenuptial agreement is signed prior to any children being born while both parents are in love with each other.
