No! The courts are not the enemy and they prefer a child(ren) to be with those that love them. If the person that wants full custody of the child(ren) can sustain a decent lifestyle for them (education, a roof over their head, good environment, love and support) this can certainly tip the scales in your favor. Good luck! Marcy * It is impossible to legally determine which parent "loves" a child more than the other, therefore that would not be a viable issue. The issue as to who has been the primary physical caregiver however is definitely taken into consideration. To say a judge never considers financial factors and is always unbiased in such matters,is not a realistic assessment, as many parents caught up in custodial disputes could confirm. Therefore, the answer is yes; it is possible for a judge to be swayed by the economic situation of one parent. Is it right? No. Does it happen? absolutely!

Not solely due to her age, but a 17-year-old who is making bad judgments about parenting or who has no financial resources to properly care for a child can easily lose custody.

A family's financial situation is usually closely related to their level of education. These two factors effect health. --access to quality health care (this must be paid for in the US. In Canada all people are covered equally) --knowledge of nutrition and exercise --knowledge of preventative health care --stress level --
