I am beginning the process of divorce. My husband and I ...

Resolved Question:

I am beginning the process of divorce. My husband and I have a 3 year old son. My husband wants to split custody down the middle. 1 week with him, one week with me. I am totally against this as I don''t feel it''s in the best interest of our child. I want our son to reside with me but have ample visitation with his father. Would the courts agree to a 50/50 custody situation with a 3 year old?

You probably win this - but its up to the court and as you say, the court is interested in "the best intersts of the child." So, if you feel strongly about this then stick to your guns as the court is most probably going to see it your way.

Al the best,
