Thank you for your question.To answer directly, you absolutely stand a chance to do so. Courts hate situations where parents intentionally use their children as pawns. The courts may see it as a situation where it is 'not in the best interest of the child' to be in such a situation, or to remain with a parent who intentionally attempts to adversely affect the relationship between the parents and children. The courts base everything on this 'best interest' evaluation, and that is how the courts try to justify whatever decision they make pertaining to where the child would be placed. That is why if you seek a change in custody, that would be the best approach to consider and to focus direct on this 'best interest' standard and why being with the other parent is not something that would benefit your child.Good luck.
