So he brought up claiming the kids and I said I was claiming them both. It is my legal right. They sleep at my house 5 nights a week. He got angry and stormed out. Now he's filing for joint custody. I think our arrangement is good. Its all money with him so he's pissed. Anyhow, I filed for cs today online (soooo easy I should have done it a year ago!) And was going to go file for custody tomorrow but did some research. Okay so it is my understanding in Mass because we were never wed I have sole custody. And because we were never married it is harder to make a case for joint custody right. I will give joint legal, but I want physical with visitation. I don't want to shuffle them around during the school week. He has more time with them then I do as is because they are both in school full time. I work all weekend so our arrangement works well.
So is my understanding that I already have sole custody correct? Or should I go file?
