If he truly is unfit, then list instances where he has abused the children or is unable to take care of them. If you are just trying to get custody and need to lie in order to do that, then the truth will come out in court - it always does and judges are very good at detecting lies. * The legally preferred method and the safest for the parent wishing to take such action is to request the state's department of family services or child protective services to do an investigation. Please be advised that once an investigation has been implemented it can be applicable to both parents especially if the alledgedly abusive parent request a like action.

When would one parent get sole custody of children?

If you are a father. You must prove the mother unfit, drugs, abuse, prison record, etc... IF you are a mother, depending on the state you live in they would allow soul custody because you are the mother. If the father is unfit and you live in Utah and/or California where they are for the father as well and want to do joint custody in most of those two states, the father must pretty much be unfit such as abuse, drugs and/or prison record for the mother to get full custody. That is pretty much when the only time I have known any parent to get full custody of their children.

If you are married and are military, you may take your child where you are set to be stationed with out proving he is unfit. We move to japan this summer, and my daughter's father has no rights to her anyways so we don't even have to bother with telling him. But, if you are not married there can be all kinds of problems. Other than that, you must consult your lawyer if he pays any kind if child support. Good luck!
