DH is currently fighting for joint custody of his daughter. Some days, BM is nice and works with him. Most, she's a bitch for no reason. He's in the Army, and has been away for training since Sept 2010. She'll randomly text him, telling him he's a shitty father, that she's gonna move and not tell him, yada yada. Then sometimes, she'll send him pictures of their daughter and things like "Bethany misses you" and shit. She's like a freaking roller coaster ride.
Their court date is May 9 (so close, thank God). We've documented most of her texts (both our phones crashed and we lot a lot of the good ones ;[ ), emails, and FB/MS messages. He has no criminal record, has a steady living situation, and job. He's asking for joint physical and legal custody, having his DD every weekend. He'd originally put Fri-Sun, but at one point BM said Fri-Mon, so he changed it to that. With all the documentation we have of her being pyscho and just plain rude, do you think it will matter? I don't see why he shouldn't get every weekend, but I'm worried they'll give him the standard every other.
Has anyone dealt with this?
Personally I haven't dealt with this but we have friends that have... What ever he does, he needs to go in calm and professionally. Present the facts but don't slander her because it will look bad on him. If he does this, I don't see why he couldn't get joint custody based on what you've said above.
