i was reading on another post from june where some mothers said that which ever parent could better provide for their children should get custody of them. so im curious which is better providing... Im living in a 1 bedroom apartment with my 2 kids who share the bedroom and i sleep on the couch. im recieving child support and public assistance. my ex is living with his mother in a 5 bedroom house. he is working a full time job making 12.50 an hour. who can better provide for our daughter? i know he ca financially but does that make him a better candidate for custody?

You can live in a small place and provide MORE than just a bed.
I agree with AdrianaS, it's the way you take care of them, and the time spent with them that is more important than palatial surroundings. Your love and attention is very important.

I believe kids should have as much time with dad as they do mom. Unless either parent is abusive to the kids I don't know why they wouldn't have shared custody. Kids are not property they should not belong to one parent over the other. Of course that requires parents to do what is best for their child and not themselves.
