Default Separating the brother and sister?

My soon to be ex wants to separate our 6 and 7 yr old kids and he will take our son.

Isnt that illegal or something at that age.

I can't imagine a judge would ever allow that--would they?

I wish to inform you that court considers best interest of child as main consideration. If a parent intends to keep just one child then it may be argued that provision for contact between siblings and parents with both the children should be made as otherwise interest of child may be affected.

I don't think too many judges would find this an appealing option.
I had a custody fight a few years back.

Even most parents don't want to split up the kids for no reason.

There's got to be a better way.

Ex is still at it.

Are there any judges that will ever allow this type of nonsense and separate the kids? Do I really have to prepare to fight this or is it just nonsense.

In such a situation the court will only consider the well-being of the kids and your ex could not separate the kids without a court order.

Working as court clerk for 4 years I never saw that once. I am sure it happens but separating them does seem harsh I agree.

Better if they both go 6 months with each parent e.g., or some other joint visitation
