It is not likely the court would grant custody to a parent with no means to support the child(ren). Unless there are unusual circumstances in the situation. One of the main concerns of the court is the children are adequately provided for in terms of shelter, food, clothing, medical care, etc. As well as being loved and nurtured.

The father would need to provide compelling evidence that the mother is unfit and the children would be better off in his custody. That is not likely since the father has no job and therefore cannot support the children.

Is there a difference in a parent who has custody of the children but not married vs the parent that does not have custody and is getting married and is fighting for custody of the children?

Being married or unmarried is not much of a determining factor when it comes to custody nowadays. In order to have custody changed you would need to prove that either your household and parenting abilities are substantially better than the other parent, or that their situation is detrimental to the children. Having a spouse does not necessarily mean that you are better able to care for the children, especially if the other parent has had custody for a significant length of time without the children having any problems in a single parent household.

Can a child live with his father if the mother has parental responsibilty?

If a child's mother has sole custody then the courts have decided this and there is a reason for it. Generally, if the mother is a good mother (fit mother) then the children will be looked after by her with the father having partial custody to see his children. If the father is unfit, then the mother would have full custody. If you are the child asking the question and are upset because your mother has house rules and you don't always agree with them then this is not a good reason to want to live with your father. Your mother gives you these responsibilities so you will learn good characteristics that will make your life a whole lot simpler. You may not see that now, but will in the future. If this is the father asking the question and you have partial custody the courts have deemed it this way for a reason. If the mother is unfit and the father wants to take full custody then you should retain a lawyer asking for full custody.


Does a man always get custody when there is an affair?

No, a man does not always get custody. If one of the people in a marriage has an affair, it is usually the person not having an affair that gets custody of the child or children.For example, if the husband is having an affair, and the wife wants a divorce, the woman (wife) would get the custody of the child or children, and not the man (husband). This is the same vice versa, too.


Could a stepfather get custody of your 2 girls if something should happen to you you have full custody and their biological father has a criminal history?

In order for the stepfather to gain custody in the event of the mother's death, there would first have to be a number of circumstances. If the father is no longer in jail, has a job, home, and a means to provide the children a safe, stable environment, he would likely be the one to get custody. Having a criminal history doesn't necessarily make a parent unfit. But if he were to sign consent for the stepfather to adopt the children, then the stepfather would get custody.But if the stepfather has not adopted the children, there is also the fact of grandparents, aunts and uncles, in addition to the father, who would possibly try to get custody if the stepfather has not already adopted the children.The best thing to do would be to talk to an attorney and find out what your options are. You should also talk to your family and let them know your wishes should something happen to you.

Can father who no longer wants custody of child keep mother from having it back?

No that is up to the judge. The father has no such authority. All he can do is provide truthful and sufficient evidence to the court as to why the mother shouldn't have custody. The court will evaluate the situation and render a decision.If the father wants to give up custody the mother will be the next logical choice of the court. The only reasons why a mother would be denied custody is if she has been declared unfit or she refuses to take legal custody.

Who gets the custody of the child if the mother is having an affair in UK?

The court care about what is in the best interest of the children and just because one parents had an affair does not mean they are unfit to parent. It can be shared custody or one get it. The court wants the children to have access to both parents. The affair will not be the thing that decides custody.
