Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

If you were to divorce, the fact that you travel for work and are away from home a considerable amount of time certainly could hurt your chance of being awarded primary custody.

Expert:  Roger replied 6 months ago.

You certainly can overcome that circumstance and convince the judge that you're still the best person to have custody of the child.

Expert:  Roger replied 6 months ago.

In order to do this, you'd need to show that despite your job, you're still the best choice as the custodial parent.
