How Do I...
Child Abduction Unit
A child has a right to:
A continuing relationship with both parents.
Be treated not as a piece of property, but as a human being recognized to have unique feelings, ideas, and desires consistent with that of an individual.
Continuing care and proper guidance from each parent.
Not to be unduly influenced by either parent to view the other parent differently.
Express love, friendship, and respect for both parents: freedom from having to hide those stated emotions or made to be ashamed of such.
An explanation that the impending action of divorce was in no way caused by the child's actions.
Not to be the subject and/or source of any and all arguments.
Continuing honest feedback with respect to the divorce process and its impact on the changing relationships of the family.
Maintain regular contact with both parents and a clear explanation for any change in plans and/or cancellations.
Enjoy a pleasurable relationship with both parents, never to be employed as a manipulative bargaining tool.
