What if neither parent is seen to be fit?
Although in most cases care of the children will be awarded to one of the parents, sometimes neither parent can provide a satisfactory home for the children. In such an instance, the court will, as a rule, try to award care to another relative, such as a grandparent.
When granting care to anyone other than the parents the court will take into account the child's relationship with this other person, the amount the other person has contributed to expenses of the child regarding birth and maintenance, the degree of commitment the other person has towards the child and the child's best interests.
