What are the chances the father of a child get custody if he abandoned the mother during pregnancy and even once denied the child and the mother is married to someone else who wants the child?
Firstly, the someone else is totally not relevant. Forget him.
Abandoning the mother is between the father and mother and doesn't affect access. Access is still possible.
Denying the child previously doesn't affect access. Access is still possible.
Mother is married to somebody. Access is still possible.
Chances of father getting sole custody. Low to impossible. Must prove mother is unfit.
Chances of father getting shared custody. Not bad. Needs to prove he is a fit parent, stable, not violent criminal etc...
Sorry, chances of a father getting full physical custody is slim and none, and slim left town. I've been batteling for years to get custody of my son from a violent, substance abused home. I've spent thousands of dollars, and countless heart aches to no avail. I've been told right to my face that the court would put my son in foster care rather than with me if for nothing less not to lose state funding if he was placed with me. It's a sham and it's no wonder that parents kidnapp their kids and run.
