Keeping in view the well-being of a child, the Bombay High Court has granted the custody of a minor boy not to his biological mother, but to his paternal uncle and aunt, who brought him up in the last seven years at their home in a joint family.
A sessions court here has allowed a man to meet his minor daughter, who is living separately with her mother, saying that "the issue of custody of the child is not a matter of right of the parents but that of welfare of the child."
Better financial resources of
either of a separated parent cannot merely be the ground for
securing guardianship of their child, a Delhi court has held
while denying a father the custody of his 9-year-old son.
