In Family Law, the separation of a couple not only affects the spouse but also affects the whole family including their child, while the parent’s right to child custody is considered in Indian law for the welfare of the child. legal custody is a form of kid custody that gives a parent authority over a child’s upbringing, including education, and mental and financial choices. Most family courts attempt to give both parents equal rights to legal custody. however, in some cases, the court may only grant legal custody to one parent. This is true if one of the parents is deemed incapable of making decisions on behalf of the child . In most cases, a father is considered to be a better legal guardian than a mother. Although mothers are always given priority when taking child custody.
