Finding space is quite a labour in Family court Bangalore PDF Print E-mail

Finding space is quite a labour


Since the entire city had only four family courts catering to its populace, two new judges were appointed recently to meet the demand. One of them, judge H Y Vasanth Kumar, took charge on Nov 3. But this has come at the cost of a labour court.

The four family courts along with three labour courts and one industrial tribunal were functioning out of the Nyaya Degula court complex on Siddaiah Road. But one of the labour court judges was shifted as a civil court judge and the court hall he vacated has now become a family court. One more newly appointed family court judge is waiting for a spare court hall.


'Aggression in children tied to parenting, not genetics' PDF Print E-mail

LONDON: Contrary to general perception that aggression or depression lies in one's genes, a new study has found that the traits may be linked to parenting at home.

An international team, led by Otago University, claims to have found that the role of positive and negative parenting practices influences a child's mental health problems, such as depression or aggression. The study, published in the 'Psychological Medicine' journal, has suggested that the parenting environment plays a unique role in children's development.

Want mum or dad, judge asks 7-yr-old girl in open court PDF Print E-mail

The girl sobs uncontrollably at the poser, following which the hearing was held behind closed doors. Finally, with the girl insisting on staying with her father, the judge gives in to the kid’s demand


care of a seven-year-old girl to her father. In itself, a verdict in favour of the father is rare, but Gowda’s process of arriving at his decision was certainly novel.

Sanjay Shetty, a hotelier, and his wife Asha, a government officer, were fighting for custody of their daughter, Shruti. While Sanjay and Asha, who hail from Mangalore and were married in 1998, were both in attendance, the presence of Shruti too seemed to have compounded matters. The arguments in court barely lasted 15 minutes before judge Gowda decided to elicit the views of the child. He asked the child in open court whom she would like to stay with. Shruti broke down and said that she wanted to remain with her father.

single dads, single moms, non custodial parent, single parent, child custodyAsk most people what constitutes a father and they will most likely answer back with descriptions like the breadwinner, little league coach, and household handy man. But when asked to describe the phrase “custodial parent,” few people associate that title with dear old dad. The times are changing; and an increasing number of males are playing the all-around role customarily reserved for mothers.

Fathers' Rights and Child Custody Law (USA)


Historical Context Prior to the twentieth century, common law jurisdictions typically treated children as the property of the father, and thus following divorce the father would gain custody as a matter of course. With the development of psychological science over the twentieth century, most jurisdictions completely transformed this presumption of paternal custody, instead imposing the so-called "tender years" doctrine which held that absent extraordinary circumstances young children should always be placed in the custody of their mothers.

On Father’s Day, in search of a new fatherland PDF Print E-mail

On every summer visit to my Calcutta house I see in the front garden the mango tree that my daughter would gleefully prance around along with mother, waiting to pluck the ripe fruits...

I even see the first-floor balcony father would stand watching my daughter playing. On Father’s Day, my eyes cried a little, but there’s not much cry left in them anymore, only the desire to feel the richness of the sorrow I once knew. It’s been close to two years I have not seen my daughter who is now 11. It’s been over a year-and-half that father passed away. Father’s Day?

I may not have done a good enough job, when my daughter was still there, to deserve that honour which, years back, I would dismiss as western clatter. But the phone call from Calcutta, where she now lives, did come through Sunday, and that was it: a 10-minute conversation in which she asked me if I had had breakfast and I wanted to know how she was doing in school. The last few seconds were taken away by the anguished I-love-yous and the I-miss-yous, but I could sense she wanted to talk more, anything.

Law Minister suggests weekend family courts to help techies and working people who cannot attend courts on weekdays; if implemented, it would be a first in the country

With the hearing on divorce petitions getting adjourned frequently due to the non-attendance of parties, Law Minister S Suresh Kumar has come up with a solution: Weekend family courts.

“A lot of matrimony cases are pending due to frequent adjournments. Software professionals, who are among the top group of people who file for divorce, find it hard to attend the hearings on weekdays. Weekend courts will help them and other professionals,” said Kumar.

Weekend courts are part of the proposal that includes starting of morning and evening courts for petty cases. “The idea came about during the conference of chief justices in Chennai recently. There are already evening courts functioning there. Shortly, I will be visiting Chennai along with Karnataka State Bar Council and Bar Association representatives on how the evening courts are functioning there,” he said.

“New Delhi and Gujarat also have evening courts. If we have weekend courts, it would be the first in India,” says K N Phaneendra, District Judge and director of the Bangalore Mediation Centre, where a large number of divorce cases are referred to by the four family courts functioning in the city.

The Psychological Effects of Relocation for Children of Divorce PDF Print E-mail

I. Introduction

The divorce of parents significantly undermines their children’s sense of security and stability. The two people upon whom the child is dependent are no longer equally accessible to  the child and the foundation of the child’s world is splintered.  From the child’s perspective, the best of all possible worlds,
after parental divorce, includes parents who are amicable, do not display overt hostility, can communicate with each other about the child, and live close enough to each other so that child can have the same playmates when with either parent.1 These conditions maximize the potential for the child developing strong, positive relationships with both parents as well as for both parents’  involvement in the child’s school and extracurricular activities and for frequent and regular contact with the nonresidential parent.
