Best Interest of the Child
Court decisions regarding the children are made based on the “best interest of the children”. The new provisions clarify and add to the definition. However, this is not a major change. Good judges where already interpreting “best interest of the child” in a way consistent with the new changes.
One significant change will be the need to file a plan of care for the child. We will deal with this later.
