Hello. My husband and his ex-wife divorces in 2015 and she currently has full custody of him even though he lives with us.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
When he goes there they do not live in a house they stay in hotels. The child’s mother’s family thinks we should have him full time.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I guess my question is what would it take to obtain full custody?
Family Lawyer: Infolawyer, Lawyer replied 3 months ago
A showing that in child interests and concsitent with reality that he lives with you. You want to prepare your case by creating a time line starting from the earliest event. For each event, write down key details and witnesses and if there is a document that relates to it, save it and refer to it. This timeline can be very valuable in narrating your case and presenting it later in a concrete and specific way. On review of your facts, you have a good case.If needed, martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options.
