Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
It is a common misperception that women are favored over men in custody issues. The children go to the better parent, regardless of gender.
The test is what is in the best interests of the children. Factors include: income, living situation, better school districts (when they're older), parenting plan, relationship each parent has with the child, fitness to parent, whether either child has a history of violence, drug abuse, or a criminal record, stuff like that.
