Who would the court pick?

Mom who is a live-in nanny or dad who lives with his parents? I don't think his dad would ever fight me for custody so I'm just wondering. Neither of us have any major issues and we live in Texas.

  • I don't know about Texas, but around here it's nearly impossible for the dad to take custody if the mom fights. As long as the people you are a live-in nanny for don't have major issues, you should be just fine. When I considered divorce sevearl years ago I was told unless the mom is on drugs or sleeping around with strange men in and out of the house or abusive she's not got anything to worry about. Good luck!

  • that is not enough information for anyone to decide who should have custody.

  • In the state of KY the court favors the mother... My nieces(twins) just got arrested for her third DUI (since December) this time they were in the car and she will get my nieces back after another round of rehab... My brother said social services said they are recommending custody go to him but he will for sure have them a year... Last time they said that he got them for 6 weeks and then she got them back...

  • Placement isn't decided based only on the living arrangements of the parent. There are 100's of factors.

    Who makes more money? Whose future has a better outlook? Who has a better support system? Who has a better lawyer? Who makes a better arguement?

  • That is so not enough information for anyone to make a decision about. It would be more about who is the most stable environment for the child.
