I see many posts about custody, and am greatly confused.
My friend is having a lot of issues, which has stirred up my questions. Plus, my mind wonders about things I don't know, and luckily you fine ladies out here seem to have the answers :)
Dad has sole custody because Mom was proven unfit and danger to children.
-Is there a grace period where she has time to clean up her act (like if she gets herself straight in a year, she gets full custody back)?
-If mom up and decides she wants custody again, do the courts give it to her automatically, because she's Mom?
-What if she only had visitation, and didn't fight anything for years... Then suddenly she decides she wants custody and support. Would the courts see through that, or would they actually grant it to her?
-Who has the tougher battle to fight: Dad who already has sole custody, or Mom who wants custody?
-Will the courts actually leave solebcustody with the Dad permenently if he is a good parent, or will they go from full to 50/50?
Obviously my questions revolve around Dad's having full custody, and why/how it changes when the mother was proven to be unfit.
Any thoughts/ stories/ insider info would be greatly appreciated!
