Without more to go on, the chances are 50-50. It is still more difficult for a father to get custody than a mother. It's not supposed to be and occasionally the courts release documents that show a difference but if yo sit in the courtroom for a few days you will seen that the fathers get the children in no more than 20-40% of the cases. However, usually the father doesn't have the advantage of working at home and being able to spend more time with the child, which I think increases your chances.
The more negatives that there are against your spouse then the more your chances increase.
