See CA Family Law Code 3040 - 3048 http://www.steveshorr.com/MATTERS_CONSIDERED_IN_GRANTING_CUSTODY.htm#custody many things come into play here. even though not required, a judge would be hard pressed not to consider things such as criminal history, job status, and area of residence. there needs to be a simple stable environment for the child to function well and possibly attend school. get whatever you are seeking in writing signed by a judge and argued by a lawyer. best of luck.

How can you get joint custody or physical custody when mother has sole custody of child?

There is a difference between physical and legal custody. The court can award joint legal custody to the parents and determine that one parent will have physical custody. It can also award joint physical and legal custody with the child sharing her time equally at the homes of the parents. Joint legal custody custody is usually reserved for parents who get along and are willing to raise their child on a solid foundation of cooperation. Couples who do not get along are not good candidates for joint legal custody and that factor will be considered in the decision by the judge. The father can petition for a modification of the custody order but he will need to provide evidence that the modification is warranted, usually by showing there has been a change in the circumstances that caused the judge to award sole custody to the mother. In order to convince the court to take physical custody from the mother, the father would need to provide evidence that the change would be in the best interest of the child based on the unfitness of the mother as a parent. See the related question link for factors the court may consider if asked to declare a parent unfit. He should consult with an attorney who can review the situation and explain both his options under state laws and his chances of success in the particular court. An attorney could present the father's petition in the best possible manner.

Can you get joint custody if you are not paid up on child support?

Support and Custody are separate. So yes if you are behind on child support you can still petition the court for joint legal custody. You would need to show some significant change in circumstances from when the current custody order was entered. However, your failure to pay child support would not compel the judge to rule in your favor since you have shown yourself to be unreliable, irresponsible and in contempt of a court order. You will have to explain your failure to pay court ordered child support to the judge. The amount you owe doesn't go away. Back child support can be taken out of your wages or out of your tax return.
