I am sorry to hear this.
Your post is very sad.
But it's also very long.
I am not sure what the question is to be honest.
Are you saying that you want to know what you can tell your son so he doesn't give up fighting for joint custody?
Sorry to carry on so long. It's hard to know where to begin when so much has happened, and also so complicated. Yes, my son is seriously considering giving up. So my question centres on what hope or possibility does a father stand to have joint custody or possibly sole custody? He can't cope with the never ending conflict from his ex, and also can't cope with seeing his children experiencing so much grief. I read that 10% of dads get custody of the children. I am in shock that my son would not be one of the 10%. How can a father win custody of the children? I must say that in having custody of the children, my son does not want to deny the mother parenting time. He just wants to protect the children from being her behaviour (she has moved 4 times in the past year and a half, takes the children to the doctor when there is no need, such as last month when she told the doctor that both children had high fevers and cough for 10 days, but this was not the case, resulting in antibiotics being prescribed for the children). His ex is demanding sole custody. I think my son should not settle for anything less than joint custody. Is there any chance or hope for fathers
