Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

The court looks at whether or not the person is mentally stable enough or not as to whether or not they will grant custody. It is not that they lost a child or grandchild or are on lexipro, it is going to depend on a current psychological evaluation of the person as to whether or not they will be safe to have the child around them.
