According to me about parential rights, it should be equal, there are 3 options:-
1. child boy or girl stays with mother and daily father gets chance to meet their child for 2 hours or 4 hours as per the mutual understading and time available from both sides and consent from both sides to meet the child at some place like temple, or fatherside relatives or some common friends area or court as mother who is apparted from father will not going to give chance to father to meet at her own place. so . this is one option.
2. child boy or girl stays with father and daily mother gets chance to meet their child for 2 hours or 4 hours as per the mutual understanding and time available from both sides and consent from both sides to meet the child at father’s place as always fatherside i hope so will not be so arrogent like motherside (wifeside) to not to get access to childs mother at their own place, but yet if it is so then mother can meet their child at their own relatives or some common friends or court or any good decided place like garden or any good and safe place for all. this is no 2 option.
3. child boy or girl stays 15 days with mother and 15 days with father if they both are staying in same city or if they are staying in different citites then option one or two will be choosen off. and if option 3 is also not accepteable, then last option is let the child stay with mother up to 5 years as it is legal necessity and also physical necessity of a child to stay with mother till 5 years and then lets have a legal fight and legal battle for the safety and good of childs future who is more powerfull and who is more moneyed and wealthy and healthy and of good sound mind and money will win the legal battle for making childs future good but in that case also may be custody may go to mother or father as per the strength of eachone but other one must get visitation rights to meet their child within a weeks time or 15days time atleast 2 hours in a week or 15 days or 1 monthly atleast to meet their child but without giving chance to father or mother on some good background it is not good for child’s development and not in the interest of mother or father to have child apparted from anyone side and it is very bad to not to give chance to meet either side to their child for no reason.
so according to me maximum possible time to either mother or father needs to be given to meet their own child if they dont have the custody on mutual beneficial way by court needs to settle such things. but in reality it is not possible as laws are bais in this matter also.. so sad…
