  • IF THE OTHER PARENT CAN PROVE THAT YOU CANT SUPPORT YOUR CHILD OR YOU HARM OR PUT THEM IN HARMS WAY..BUT IF YOU AND THE OTHER PARENT BOTH CAN SUPPORT THE CHILD OR CHILDREN AND DONT HARM THEM THEN MOST LIKELY YA'LL WOULD GET SPLIT CUSTODY...ONE OF YA'LL WOULD BE THE MAIN ONE AND THE OTHER WOULD GET THE HOLIDAYS WEEKEND AND SUCH...THERE JUST DIFFERENT REASON DEPENDING ON THE SITUATION

  • Judges don't often give full custody in the first place unless one of the parents is unfit. Most often a 70/30 ratio is given...and most often the mom is the one that gets 70% of the time with the child. Generally I would advise anyone fighting for custody to hire a lawyer. It can be a long, drawn out, emotional process...and people often get screwed over royally when not represented well.

  • Your right Judges don't often give full custody, My husband however has custody of his daughter after a court battle that proved my daughters mother unfit, Mom's don't always get custody of the child that part is wrong, Things that will keep you from getting custody, if you are proven unfit, if drugs are ever a problem, where you live, how many other children you have, or had but do not have custody of, You will not get FULL custody of the child, however if you wish to go for it and try to, you will have to prove the other parent is unfit, and that your child will be harmed if around them, you can ask for supervised visits, with the other parent!!

  • What type of information reports a person as an unfit person to be a custodial parent?

    How does visitation work?

    Don't children have a say in where they want to live if they are over the age of 12? How does this effect the the custody outcome?
