KS law sets out the following factors to be considered in awarding custody typically:
the child's adjustment to home, school and community; the wishes of the parents and the child; which parent will most cooperate in helping the child maintain a relationship with the other parent; and evidence of spousal abuse. Neither the mother nor the father is preferred because of sex.
See the following link for more information:
Courts tend to prefer joint physical custody
if feasible, all other factors being equal. Having different child care providers would typically weigh against a joint custody
arrangement. However, the fact the providers are also family mitigates this typically and courts are willing to seriously consider such arrangements if the arrangement is not too disruptive to the child.
Since each child and situation is different, you would typically need to produce credible evidence indicating it would not be in the child's best interests to award joint custody. If not, some period of time each week is likely to be granted to the father, not every other weekend.
Good luck and take care.
