A.ND. v. B.A.: Dakar Appeal Court, 2019


ND. requests the court to grant her custody of her daughter and a sum of 100.000frs for child support. Before hearing, she was granted access to the child every other weekend, though this was changed later and the child was put under her guardianship. During the hearing, she alleges that her husband does not provide adequate care for the child and is often violent towards her. B.A (the husband) refutes these allegations. Custody is however granted to the mother. B.A is awarded visitation rights and asked to pay the sum of 75.000frs for child support.
