    That is the percentage of timeshare you have with your child which directly affects the amount of child support you will pay besides your gross monthly income. You should seek the advice of an attorney that handles custody, visitation and support issues.

    E’s Answer

    it apears you have enough grounds to go in on an emergency basis to seek custody of your son aside from the fact that she lost her first child. the court will want to see that you can provide a stable living environment for your son as apparently she is now homeless and the best interest of your son is to be in your primary physical care.

    You should do everything you can to get reinstated before your review hearing, but if not, you will have to explain the reasons why you were kicked out to the judge. The court can violate you for failure to follow your probation terms. It is a good idea to get a knowledgeable and competent attorney to get you reinstated back to your classes and try to avoid any jail time.

  • Is it a bad idea to ask for sole physical custody and joint legal custody due to the fathers lifestyle?

    E’s Answer

    It is not a bad idea to seek sole legal and sole physical custody of your child as it appears, based on your circumstances, that the father's behavior and lifestyle presents a risk to your child. The court will look at the child's best interest and make specific orders for you since the dad has no driver's license, and visitation for the dad may require a supervisor or monitor based on his behavior and lifestyle. You should seek competent legal representation and legal advice in your area on this matter.
