  • yes, several actually. honestly i believe if both parents work and are stable and loving they should share custody 50/50. the child is as much the fathers as it is the mothers. of course if the child is old enough they should be able to decide not the court

  • My ex husband gained custody of his kids when they were 4 and 6. That was part of the reason I moved in--to help him care for them. I raised them until they were 14 and 16 and then he and I split. They are now 20 and 22.
    She neglected her kids. They suffered from malnutrition and tooth decay so bad that the dentist wanted to press charges for child neglect. We convinced him not to as we now had custody of them.
    She had to pay child support too.

  • Yes, I know many dads who have custody of their kids because it was the best place for them to be.

  • My older 4 kids are with their fathers, my personal choice. I knew I couldn't do what needed to be done to care for them at the time, so I made a contract, of sorts, with the fathers, then the Judge went along with what we had agreed too.

  • My BIL has custody, his ex has visitation and has to pay child support. He is the better parent by far. His kids call their step-mom MOM and their bio-mom by her first name - yeah, they like their step-mom better!

  • My Ex has custody of our kids. The kids chose to stay with him and I didn't care as long as they're happy. I see them whenever we choose considering we only live 15 minutes apart.
