By petitioning the court to give joint custody to the parents. In most state, Joint Legal Custody is the standard.

If you mean Joint Physical Custody, with 50/50 Custody, this is more complicated, requiring preparation similar to petitioning for full custody.

Yes if she can prove that it would be the the child's best interest to be with her physically. Custody orders can change at any time. If there is a sign of danger from the child being with the father, the mother can gain physical custody.


I think it depends on how long the mother will be incarcerated for. There might be a hearing giving the father temporary custody. But if the father ever tries to get full physical custody of the child in the future, it might not be good for the mother. However, she can never be refused visitation.



That would be called joint custody and can be a good arrangement if it can be accomplished.



If the father has joint-custody of the child, not many. You are also at risk of an accusation of child alienation if you refuse.



If I have temporary joint custody, can I get sole custody?


No. If there's a court order against the father, which resulted in any kind of arrears, the father is still responsible for it. Arrears are paid and there's no statute of limitations on it, as well as, any support and/or custody modifications.


That depends on income difference and time with child. Some sole custody fathers still have to pay.see link
