    Answered . You need to consult an attorney in your area who has experience with custody issues. Generally, a judge will decide custody and timesharing based on what is in the child's best interest. This is a situation where one should definitely get legal representation. Custody and timeshare issues can get very "ugly" very quickly.

    Answered . I would agree with Mr. Cox that there are a number of factors a judge is to consider when talking about custody and time the child spends with both parents. Having an attorney to guide the mother through all of this would be a very good idea and strongly encouraged. While none of us can give specific advice, in general it is difficult to cut a parent completely out of a child's life. Even persons who use drugs may still see their kids--it's usually in a supervised capacity, but as a parent, one has significant rights to see their children as long as it's in the child's best interest and done in a safe manner.
