Subject:  Reference letter for child custody

Dear (Sir or Madam),

I write this letter on behalf of my best friend (Relation type) (name of the individual), in support of obtaining custody of (his/her) one and only (son/daughter) (name of the son/daughter). (Describe in your words).

(Name of the individual) is not only the child’s (father/mother) but also (his/her) best friend. Most people who know (him/her) believe that (he/she) is not being able to give enough time to (his/her) (son/daughter) because (he/she) is too busy with (his/her) own work. (Describe the actual problem and situation). However, I don’t think so. My friend has always spent quality time with (his/her) (son/daughter) every single day.

I am a regular visitor of (his/her) house, and I also know (his/her) (son/daughter) very well, and I have never found them unhappy. (Describe all about terms and conditions). I strongly believe that (name of the son/daughter) is in the good hands of my friend (he/she) can promise a smooth future for (his/her) (son/daughter). (Explain your expectation).

As the primary witness of the bonding shared between them I hope that (name of the individual) is given the custody of (his/her) (son/daughter) (name of the son/daughter). (Cordially describe your greetings and recommendation).

Thanking You

Yours truly,
