Unhappy Court Appearance

 

A powerful picture!  Scales are in view.   Is this a fair case? Are the red hands indicative of something?  Two parents and a child are at the desk.  Suitcases packed; does this mean someone is moving out?  Mom and dad are fighting.  The child is in the middle of his parents with large tears streaming down his face. What is this child experiencing?
