Children pay heaviest price in custody battles, says SC

New Delhi, February 18

Highlighting the plight of children caught in custody battles between their parents, the Supreme Court on Tuesday said they were always the losers and paid the heaviest price for no fault on their part as they got deprived of parental love and affection.

“In a custody battle, no matter which parent wins, but the child is always the loser and it is the children who pay the heaviest price as they are shattered when the court by its judicial process tells them to go with the parent whom he or she deems fit,” a Bench said. — TNS
