Is there someone who can represent best interests of a child in a recently decided case?My sister has been stay at home mom for kids ages 6 and 9. Father asked for full custody. After 2 1/2 years case went to court. Judge split case into 2- custody heard last month & financials heard this month. Judge awarded joint custody- with Dad ( a FT physician and deep pockets) having physical custody 70% and mom 30%- a complete reversal of how it had been during kids life and 2 1/2 yr. separation Judge said father was ready, willing & capable- that Mom made a "good play date for kids." Father hired nanny to care for kids vs. mom who has always been one to take care of school. MD visits, social etc. Kids are distraught- calling mom, crying . What can be done? How can kids voices be heard?
