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.

Object to the results of the custody evaluation. Call witnesses. Most importantly, call the evaluator herself (bet it is Jane ****z) - then rip up her flawed report. Attack her credibility and show her bias. This process can take up to a year depending on the court's calendar. Costs money too obviously. Good Luck.

She should think about whats really in the best interest of her child. Many children don't have their father fighting for months in court in order to spend time with them. If it was really just about getting her child away from paparazzi she could move to Utah, Idaho, anywhere in the midwest thats more private and not L.A. At least then she would stay in the country and itd be a hell of a lot closer so BOTH parents could have time with the child.

Gabe please just let her go. Since the paps won't bother her in France we'll all be rid of her which would be greatly appreciated.

tough call. halle's responsibility to her daughter is to keep her safe. sure, moving to france may do so, but look at nicole kidman and keith issues in nashville, tn. sandra bullock in austin, tx etc...i think it's more of a spite thing and the photogogs are the scapegoat. after all, we did not drag her kicking and screaming into the film industry. she ought to take stock of her feelings for her own dad, does she really want to subject her daughter to that misery simply to get back at gabriel for whatever wrong he did? i am of the opinion that how a first relationship fizzles, it may be the partner, but after the 3rd or 4th you need to take a look in the mirror. she constantly harps on how badly she's been treated by men, but look at this olivier....he's a known womanizer, as was eric benet.

TEAM HALLE! All you haters just mad because the judges have seen all the facts. He was a leech plain simple. I am sure he loves his daughter but he is a leech and tried to use his daughter for money i.e. 20,000. for child support. Halle has done alot for this loser.

It's not surprising that money can buy anything, even "expert" testimony.

SO SAD!!! This is wrong, yeah right visitation rights. 560...0 miles away. How much should you have to pay to see YOUR child? A trip across the waters is to much. Make Halle pay for his visitation rights then.
