Today, as I was finalizing my divorce with my soon to be ex-wife, she thought it would be a good idea to bring our two children to the divorce court. Before custody was put in place my ex-wife gave them both a piece of candy and promised them a trip to Disneyland they chose her. FML

Before either parent is awarded custody the children are interviewed and questioned. Very rarely do small children get to make the decision. And its never decided in court without the judge even speaking to the children.

My so. turns 18 in two days and hasn't spoken to his father in nearly 2 years because his father played the same games. Children grow up and eventually their love can't be bought.

Btw, I hope you mentioned to the judge their reason for choosing her. My judge didn't appreciate my ex's bribery.

If they're young enough for that to work they're too young for their choice to be the final say. It might influence the judge but not more than everything else about the case.

Not true. Many courts will consider the child's input from age 12. My son was offered a new PS4 if he said my house was dirty and I never spend time with him or help with homework. Which was great for him since we were in court over the atrocious action of my grounding him from his phone. Luckily, my judge didn't want to hear it. But some judges do.

Oh, that’s a dick move. I’m sorry your children are being used as pawns. I hope you’ll be the bigger person and not shit talk the other parent; I remember how that made me feel when my parents split. Best of luck to you and your offspring
