Depending on the situation, there are many people who can be, and should be, responsible for a child’s welfare during a high-conflict divorce. If a child dies during divorce proceedings, it could be the fault of the mother, due to her being suicidal and not wanting to leave her child to fend for themselves in a cruel world, severe and crippling financial issues, etc. It could also be the fault of the father for vengeance, or an outburst of anger. And, in some cases, it could be considered the fault of the government for not getting involved soon enough to remove the child from a dangerous situation. No matter who is at fault, those outside of the situation can help prevent this from happening by checking in on the child and providing assistance whenever possible.
