Thank you. A Judge is always going to act in the best interest of the children, when deciding custody. As such, you can petition the court and try and obtain custody of them but you are going to need to show that the father is unfit and not capable of caring for them or able to provide for them and meet their basic needs. If you can show this then you do have a good chance. A Judge is going to want to keep the children with their mother BUT if she is unable to care and provide for them, will not allow them to remain and can allow another family member to step in and take care of them.
