Child's Bill of RightsThe Child’s Bill of Rights was implemented for the sole purpose of protecting all children involved in divorce. There are a number of factors in the development of custodial issues. All 50 states have adopted this Bill of Rights in order to protect children and to uphold all of their rights in the event of a dissolution of marriage. The Bill of Rights has many different clauses worked into it, specifically
geared towards helping children  involved in divorce who cannot speak for themselves. Without this bill, children would fall by the way side and have much less of a say in divorce as, sadly, children are often forgotten when crucial decisions are being made.

The bill states that children have a number of specific rights. Children involved in a dissolution have the right to a continuing relationship with both parents. This is implemented in order to keep the bonds between parent and child strong, as dissolution can easily break bonds such as these.

The bill also has clauses that indirectly reference both parents. For instance, both parents must allow children to be directly involved with decisions, meaning that any child must be informed and approve of said decisions. The bill also has a civil clause stating that no arguments will be had in front of any offspring in order to keep the divorce peaceful among all parties involved. The sole purpose of these laws is for all children involved, no matter the age, to be informed during the entire divorce process. Often times when divorces occur, spouses become so concerned with assets, finances, and the like that their children often lose their voice and lose out on their say in the process.
