It has nothing to do with sex of the parent, only who is in the best position to provide for the child (physically, emotionally, materially, etc.). If both parents can provide for all the childs needs then custody will usually be shared, even if one parent has more time with the child. I don't agree that the mother is shown prefence, the person who has physical custody (even if you have filed for custody, if your child lives with you, you have physical custody by matter of fact). The person the child lives with is the person that is given preference. Usually, that is the mother, which is why mom's are often prefered. I would file for custody even if your child lives with you, before the father does, if he hasn't already. If there is no custody order and he visits with your child there isn't any guide to say when he has to bring her back. Good luck.
