Father is fighting for 50/50 custody.

Asked about 4 years ago - West Covina, CA

I have a 18 month-old daughter and the father is planning to fight for 50/50 custody. He pretty much has that now, it is just broken up in between days. My question is that since our child is a girl, what must he legally provide for her, when she is in his care. Currently, he is renting a room, and our daughter sleeps with him.

I don't necessarily have a problem with this right now, but obviously, will become a problem as she gets older.

What are the "rules" for her age now and when she gets older?
