...that a judge would ever decide that a child should be with a BM who is a full time student instead of a dad who has a full time job and his significant other also has a full time job??

I'm not saying its worse. I'm just wondering if it's a legitimate reason to try to take custody from someone...


Quoting packermomof2:

I've gone to school full time while my ex had a full time job.  I kept my kids.  They didn't go to him.  Why is a full time school worse than full time job when you're going to school, usually, to get a better, more lucrative job?

Putting a child in daycare is mot grounds for a parent to lose custody, that much I do know. They could say hey you havee custody but BM gets first rights before baby sitter to keep dd.

So like if we have to go to work and she doesn't want him to give her to a babysitter, she has the right to drive here and baysit her all day until he is off?

Perhaps.

I mean a reason why one party should be chosen for custody over the other. The student versus job thing isn't enough of a reason. Also, the "significant other" with a job is irrelevant. Anyone can get, or lose, a boyfriend or girlfriend with a job.

 Generally, student/employment status isn't really considered when looking at custody.  Instead, they look at who the child is used to being with, who has typically cared for the child, and who has the ability to care for the child.
