My friend is father of four children's. His wife cheated on him, found a boyfriend and wants a divorce
. We need suggestion on how to become a legal custody for children's.
They were a christian family. About a year ago she started cheating, my friend forgave her but cheating continued. That situation happened couple times, until one day she left children's at home and left for three days to casino. My friend had to take off from his job to stay with children's. After that, he asked her to try starting "new life" one more time, but this did worked and she wants a divorce.
When she left to casino for three days, the babysitter opened a claim to child protective services. It is under investigation right now. Couple days ago she left 4 children's at home for more then three hours and we have people who can witness. Will this be a strong enough point for dad to be a legal custody?
Church is ready to support him in the court to be legal custodian but what else can he does so he will be legal custody?
Which steps need to be taken so he will be the legal custodian?
What are the chances for him to be legal custodian?
His three children's are older then five and they wants to be with their dad. Will the be counted in court?
Please give us detailed response as detailed as you can.
