Can a father gain custody if he is $20,000 behind in child support and the mother is primary care giver? 1 Answers as of June 30, 2011
We have been divorced for 5 years. The mother has had physical custody since the divorce. The mother is in the military and facing a move to MS by August. The father is $20,000 behind in child support and has not provided court ordered health insurance for his children. He is seeking custody. Is it likely he will be granted it for the sake of preventing their move?

No. If the court placed the children with the mother, then without a change in the circumstances in her home that is contrary to the children's interests, it is unlikely. Stay well.
