Good evening. A Judge is always going to act in the best interest of the child. If the father is now seeking custody, after you filed for child support, it is likely because he hopes if it is granted or shared, he will not have to pay it. In order to obtain custody, you want to show what you can provide for the child, what you have provided, how you always have cared for the child and anything else about the school, family, friend and home environment, which you provide. If you have family or friends with first hand knowledge of this, they can testify on your behalf as well and the goal is to also show that the father has not been around and has been in and out of her life, without any consistency.
