Excuses Used By Judges To Take Away Custody From Fathers
This is illegal and an excuse CREATED by their temporary orders
Recently the U.S. Supreme Court has held that states can not hide behind immunity any longer for constitutional violations that they create. That is exactly what they are doing here. Also the Rooker-Feldman Doctrine has been smashed, which was always used as the reason to throw family court cases out of federal court.


"The parties shall have joint legal custody..."
"The Wife shall have sole physical custody..."

Regarding both legal and physical custody, the conclusion of Law by the judge cited GL 208, 31 and further cited:
 "when determining child custody awards in general...the guiding principle always has been the best interests of the child." Matta v Matta, 44 Mass. App. Ct. 946, 947 (1998) citing Ardizoni v Raymond, 40 Mass. App. Ct. 73,4 738 (1996); Rolde v. Rolde, 23 Mass. App. Ct. 398, 402 (1981)

"It  is in the 'best interests of the child' to preserve the current placement with a parent, if it is a satisfactory one, and stability and continuity with the child's primary caregiver is itself an important factor in a child's successful upbringing." Custody of Kali, 439 Mass. 834, 842 (2003)

The court should not "rearrange a child's living arrangements in an attempt to achieve some optimum from all available permutations and combinations of custody and visitation, when it is generally wiser and safer not to meddle in arrangements that are already serving the child's needs." Custody of Kali, 439 Mass. at 842.

"In making an order or judgment relative to the custody of children, the rights of the parents shall, in the absence of misconduct, be held to be equal, and the happiness and welfare of the children shall determine their custody.  When considering the happiness and welfare of the child, the court shall consider whether or not the child's present or past living conditions adversely affect his physical, mental, moral or emotional health." GL 208, 31
