My future x-husband and I have court this Thursday. I live in Indiana btw. We have an almost 3 year old son together (he'll be 3 this August). I am only asking him for $50 a week in child support which is less than the state would grant, and I am only asking for half of the marital assests which is only the things we bought with the wedding money. Everything else is his. He is being completely irrational and is telling me he cannot afford to pay me child support because he just bought a boat. He also said he is going to fight me for joint physcial custody (I agreed to joint legal and sole physcial for me) so that he can get the support lowered even more. Right now he has our son 2 overnights a week and 3 overnights every other week...mainly because 2 of those days I have to work and have no one at home to watch him (my son and I live with my parents). We both have lawyers and mine is telling me I have nothing to worry about and his is telling him he has nothing to worry about. Both saying we are both going to get what we want which is obviously impossible. So do you think he had a shot at getting joint physcial? I also have dirt on him that I will bring out if necessary. Text messages from him telling me he wants to drive his truck into a tree...etc.Answer Question

here in Nevada, all parents get join custody...even those who present evidences of physical abuse....or emotional damage....The family court believe that no mother what BOTH PARENTS HAVE THE RIGHT TO RAISE THE CHILDREN TOGETHER....they created them, they raise them EVEN IF IT INCLUDES THE KIDS GOING BACK AND FORT FROM ONE HOUSE TO THE ANOTHER in the middle of the week.......SO, good luck!
