BRACERS Record Detail

Davies informs BR that, "As there is in existence a settlement for each of the children, it is a simple matter to make them wards of court by issuing a writ on your behalf as the next friend of the children to which the trustees of the settlement will be defendants."
"Again we cannot relay on any bargaining with Dora as to the matter of custody in connection with the divorce." "Any one would advise you that to ask the Court of Chancery to make an order giving practically the sole custody of the children to a father who was living in adultery would be a very uphill task, and that you could probably have to ask the court for something short of such an order; although of course, on all occasions we should emphasize that you are really blameless as a father and that their association with you and Peter would be for their benefit, whereas their association with Dora would be for their detriment."
Davies discusses issuing a writ to make the children wards of the Court of Chancery.
