Thank you for your response but that does not answer my question completely. My son tried to keep things going and get married which is what should be done when you have a child. He has been caring for this baby along with her equally because they both have been having a very spotty job history since the baby was born. They have cared for him equally and still do since she kicked him out as my son has him about 3 or 4 days per week because she is busy running around with her new boyfriend My son would be looking for at least 50% custody so do you knowif that is ever granted to the father in these circumstances or does the mother always get more % of custody?
Thank you again for your response If we can talk to the mother and both parties can come to some type of agreement then can the parties take that to court and get a court order without the expense of having to hire attorneys to battle it out. I guess what I am asking if both parties can agree to the custody % then can we get it done without hiring attorneys?
