Throughout history many custody laws were biased in favor of the Mother when it came down to Custody dreamstime_xxl_12445147Cases.

Gender and how it relates to child custody and visitation cases

The American Bar Association Center on Children and the Law published its second edition of “A Judge’s Guide: Making Child-Centered Decisions in Custody Cases.” This informative procedural guidebook explains how courts have moved away from Maternal preference and toward a gender-neutral approach. Although this publication guides judges to in rare cases, consider gender in their decisions in situations involving:

  • Parental alienation — A parent who is known to make degrading  remarks about the gender of the other parent. This may contribute to Parental Alienation.
  • Gender perceptions — A parent who makes derogatory comments about the opposite gender can negatively shape the children’s perceptions of that gender. This can potentially damage the self-esteem of the children of that gender. Children who are the same sex as the offending parent may feel distrust and hostility toward the sex that is being attacked.
  • Breast-feeding — A mother who is breast-feeding her young child must typically maintain a consistent schedule for breast-feeding. This is crucial for bonding as well as nutritional value.
  • Gender identification — A child may identify with a parent of the same sex during crucial developmental periods in the child’s life.
