Will I get child custody if I get a divorce? 6 Answers as of June 11, 2013My wife and I are at odds with each other. Our marriage has been very difficult. We now find ourselves battling over custody of our two-year-old daughter. She was put on 5 year probation in 2009. Stealing pain medication. Last December she was arrested on felony charge of receiving stolen property, she is waiting her court date. In Feb. she was arrested again for stealing, currently she is awaiting judgment on that charge as well. Do I stand a chance to get my daughter if I file for divorce?

Yes, you have a very good chance. If you can provide a stable, loving home and considering the mother's criminal history, there is a good chance the court will find that it is in the child's best interest that her primary physical residence is with you, the father.

Yes, you absolutely do. You need some legal advice so that you can plan what you are going to do. Give me a call, make an appointment to come see me, and let's get moving on this for you. No charge for the first office visit. I know people worry about how expensive a lawyer is, so I am careful to be as inexpensive as I can for my clients. Before you spend a dime, you will know how much this is likely to be.
