I ask because I am seriously considering leaving my fiance, & I have a feeling that things will get nasty, fast. He has issues, & a past to prove it (rehab, a 2-week stint in jail, etc.) I think I've finally accepted that I can't change him, & I can't help him if he doesn't want that help. I don't believe that he could adequately care for our daughter- he loves her, but she has severe special needs, & he has very little patience (he also hasn't been to a doctor's appointment with us since her first birthday- she's 3 1/2 now) I would like to have full custody of her.... in light of his situation, do you think a judge would grant it? I'm just worried, because I've heard that some judges think moms asking for full custody & no visitation rights are cold. Some other facts- I live with my parents, go to school full-time where I'm in good standing working towards my RN license, & babysit. He lives with his mother (who has a past even worse than his) & can't claim a job since graduating high school, or any attempt at higher education. I also know he does drugs, although he won't admit to it, but I'm not sure he could be made to take a test, or that it could be done soon enough that he couldn't flush his system. What do you ladies think? Do I have a good chance here?

can i ask why no visitation at all . maybe supervised visitation would be better then you don't seam so much like you wona cut him out don't get me wrong i'm all for keeping kids away from bad parents and if you don't trust him i'm 100% for asking for him to be supervised and if he messes up no visits then but i do think it will look to harsh jumping straight for no visits
