custody proceedings

I can't find anything on this in my dictionaries, but I remember it coming up a couple of years ago on a translators' list. It's used in Argentina and, for all I know, elsewhere.

It also seems to fit in the context.

custody proceedings

child custody: an overview
Generally, statutes authorize the court having jurisdiction of divorce proceedings to determine who shall have custody of children from the marriage. (The authority to do so is considered part of the original jurisdiction of the court, and not as a new authority being conferred upon them.) Under the common statutory provision, the parents of a child born within a marriage are joint guardians of that child and the rights of both parents are equal--each parent has an equal right to the custody of the child when they separate.
You'll find a lot about custody in this site.

Best regards,
