MATRIMONIAL DISPUTE HARMS CHILDREN'S MIND, BODY : DELHI HIGH COURT

MATRIMONIAL DISPUTE HARMS CHILDREN'S MIND, BODY : DELHI HIGH COURT

New Delhi (PTI): The trauma of children whose parents are involved in matrimonial dispute has drawn the attention of the Delhi High Court which said couples often remain unmindful of the psychological, mental and physical impact it has on kids.

Justice Kailash Gambhir in a recent judgement said the children are the worst sufferers "who not only get deprived of love, care and affection of one of their parents but practically become targets for the parties to score over one another in this mad race and obsession of winning possession, exclusive control and custody of the children".

Expressing concern over the changing behaviour of the children due to the differences between their parents, Justice Gambhir said "The marital discord sometimes reaches a stage where parties are unmindful of what psychological, mental and physical impact it has on children."

"Children, whose parents seek divorce, witness negative family interaction prior to a divorce and also experience many life transitions and strained familial relationship after divorce," Justice Gambhir said.

The observations of the court came while dealing with a petition filed by a man seeking custody of his daughter from his estranged wife in a matrimonial case.

For more than seven years, the husband and wife have been filing petitions one after another before the court accusing each other of violating the court order for their daughter's custody.
