When does "best interests of the child" apply? It seems the court relies on this but it is not made clear how this is applied. For example if my daughter's life is to change and her family is to break up is this deemed as "best interests"? Also if a court demands a DNA test can they also apply a 'stay' on this until she is 16?
Does my husband and my daughter's father have any form of say in this, as he has been the one who has raised her and any contact with (J) has been without his knowledge and not of the children's own volition? This case is not black and white but it seems it is being treated as such.
