Halle Berry, Gabriel Aubry

Custody Evaluation Shows

Halle's the Better Parent

6/4/2012 11:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0604_halle_gabriel_01The all-important custody evaluation has been written and submitted to the judge in the Halle Berry/Gabriel Aubry custody war -- and sources tell TMZ the conclusion is clear -- Halle is the better parent, and that clears the way for her move to Paris.
The custody evaluator -- a psychologist -- wrote the report after extensive interviews with Halle, Gabriel, 4-year-old Nahla and others.  Sources tell TMZ ... the report raises issues about Gabriel's ability to care for Nahla, in part because of personal issues.  We're told the evaluator did not question Gabriel's love for his daughter or her love for him, but the report does cast doubt on his ability to assume responsibility for the custody and care for the little girl.

Now here's where it gets interesting ... The judge will decide the custody arrangement later this month, and whether Halle gets to move to Paris with Nahla -- something Gabriel vigorously opposes.

Under California law, the judge cannot question the fact that Halle is moving to Paris.  He can't tell her she's not allowed to move, nor can he conclude that she's bluffing.  The judge must accept AS FACT that Halle is moving to France.

The judge must then decide what is in the "best interest" of Nahla -- being with Halle full time or being with Gabriel.  Given the conclusions in the custody evaluation report, it's pretty clear the judge will decide Nahla is best served by being with Halle.  So Halle now has a huge advantage in her bid to move to France with the kid. 

If Halle is allowed to move, it's almost certain Gabriel would get visitation rights, but that's easier said than done when Nahla is 5,600 miles away.

ROL adding more fuel to the fire:

both of them acting like kids:

More she said, he said. She may be the better parent overall. Aubry could be a golddigger or a KFraud wannabe or may be selective like Halle with his schedule for court hearings. Who knows?
Nothing wrong with wanting to protecting their kid at any cost, seriously work out their differences before it effects the kid more.

Most parent evaluators are worthless. They take sides and make terrible decisions. This happens to dads and moms all the time.
How can an evaluator make a fair recommendation after viewing you with your child for 20 minutes or so?
How about abused kids lying to parent evaluator by denying a parent was abusive? Many abused kids are afraid to tell anyone what has happened to them and are afraid of repercussions from the controlling/abusive parent.
Nahla is quite young, but she may be afraid of her mom. Scary is an actress, how much do you wanna bet scary has "coached" Nahla by rehearsing a story line that negatively impacts Gabriel?
I'm praying for you Gabriel and Nahla!
