SoloLawyer :

Thank you. Give me a moment to review.

Customer:

Icurrently I have my son for the entire school year except for two weeks at Christmas he has my son for Christmas and New Years and he has my son for the majority of the summer I have him 10 months my ex has him for two I do not like the two months is too long for 4 year old child keep your grass is when he returns as a treat him like a baby he said he does not like wearing diapers to bed he uses a potty and has for two years they are germ a phobe it and make him wash and changes clothes 3 times a day he is quiet while he's there and he is the most talkative person I know and that is symptomatic of aggression they say he's happy and he's not because they don't know him silence for him is coping it is not complete compliance and happy child

SoloLawyer :

Thank you. From what you have mentioned, I don't see why the Judge would grant this third attempt at full custody, unless something has drastically changed since the last Order was made. Custody is determined by looking at the "best interests of the children". The last Order ruled that it was in the child's best interests to stay with you. So, unless there has been a large change, he probably won't succeed this time either.
