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.

I now find Halle Berry disgusting.

"We're told the evaluator did not question Gabriel's love for his daughter or her love for him"

Any mother who tries to tear a child away from their father is not a good mother.

If she moves, she should have to pay for Gabriel to fly to France REGULARLY.

Let her take Nahla to france it is going to be harder on Nahala than Halle can possibly imagine she is going to a country where she does not know anybody does not know the language and has no friends and will have a hard time in school. Who is to say what happens to her in her school where parents take pictures and sell them.

Means nothing.
One individual psychologist's evaluation reveals nothing about the facts, only an individual psychologist's personal opinion...not fact...and in many cases, includes an agenda and motive from said psychologist and/or the custodial system and family courts they represent.
The family court system is strongly stacked against fathers, per the sexist anti-male sentiment in our society including our justice and judicial system.
Additionally orgs such as National Organization for Women and American Bar Association work together to create a strong-arm effect in our family courts to force fathers out of custodial rights by using legal terminology and method to **falsely** accuse the father of negligence, domestic abuse and indifference.
This lands big money in the pockets of Natn'l Org for Women and American Bar Assoc through both taxpayer funding grants and attorney's fees and more.
The good news...times are changin'.
Father's and children's rights groups are fighting to change laws to prevent custodial parents from moving their children away to another country...away from their father.
Fathers and Families dot org, great website and org fighting for father and children's rights.

While I can't stand Berry, Gabriel Aubry is a douchebag. Like 95% of the men she keeps choosing to have relationships with.

His Prince Michael    

Yet AGAIN - A unfairly-biased, unjust, and long-corrupted "Legal System" rules against a man.

A mere microcosm, for the crafted and cunning demasculization of "America": From LOWERING military-standards, to gender-biased hiring practices, to double-standards for Parental Rights.
Be not further decived: THIS, is no longer acceptable and shall NOT be tolerated.

Daniel Twelve;1 is HERE,
Zechariah Twelve;8 is NOW,
St. Mark Twelve;36 is NOW,
Psalm2_012 is NOW:
The Most Blessed Christ King YESHUA reigns!
ALL, for The Greater Glory of The TRUE and Living YAHWEH!

Why does the court not give Nahla represtation that is not Halle or gaberiel to give her a voice on what is best for her since her mother wants to move her to another country away from her father and give him absolutly no rights.

Halle will be back in the states after he dumps her. She will try to commit suicide again during this process. Who's mentally the better parent again?

Gabriel wanted to marry Halle. She DID NOT want to marry him. Let's just face it; she went seeking a sperm donor and landed a good one. She then wanted him to become a dad totally not interested in his child, but to her dismay he really wants to be involved in his daughter's life.

After seeing Halle in Monster's Ball, I know she's the parent with the hottest boobs.

She's so selfish. It's clear that the paps aren't stalking and terrorizing her. She walks around freely with Nahla all the time. She doesn't care that her daughter won't be able to see her dad much. She figures Oliver can just step right into Gabriel's shoes. Can't stand Halle Berry!

At this point I want her to make a movie or simply go away and live her life under a rock. Stop covering this and leave the woman alone.

Thankfully most adults know that the pictures at the top of this article are intentionally misleading. Very biased reporting.
