Hello. My name is***** will be happy to answer your question.
I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.

Both parents are presumed to have 50/50 custody, however, each case is unique and different, so the answer would depend on many, many factors related to a specific case.

If you have a more specific legal question, I will be happy to answer it for you.
