Question: How many fathers win custody of there child(ren) from the mother? I fought for, and was granted full custody of my 7 year old daughter. I did not have an attorney while my ex girlfriend did have an attorney. Are there any other fathers that have been successful in there attempts?
Answer: I did.
She had an attorney, and I didn't.
He was just a general attorney, not a family law specialist, and I outwitted him every step of the way.
She was also ordered to pay me child support.
If you get a good judge, they can see who would be the better parent for the child to live with.
My judge was a woman, but she did not take my ex-wife's side at anytime. She even chastised her for wasting the court's time on one of our many visits.
A few years later, the ex tried to get custody, but couldn't provide a good reason, and that was enough for the courts to leave my son with me.
