Danish to English translations [PRO] Law/Patents - Law (general) / Forældremyndighed
Danish term or phrase:principalt/subsidiært
Sagsøgte har nedlagt påstand om, principalt at forældremyndigheden for alle de tre børn tillægges ham alene, subsidiært at forældremyndigheden over A og B tillægges ham, mens forældremyndigheden over C tillægges sagsøgeren.
Explanation: I think it is important to try to maintain the relationship between the two concepts as the appear in Danish. The litigant's first argument is the one he or she wants as their first choice, the second is his or her second choice, it is not an alternative in the equal sense of the word.
