    Answered . Justice is supposed to be blind, but it is not deaf. The best interests of the child control who gets custody. You would have to be pretty awful for your background to trump his.

    Answered . The judge in the case will look at all relevant factors to decide what is in the best interest of the child. In this case, the factors you mentioned may be used to show that the childs best interest is met if custody is granted to the mother. You would be best consulting an attorney for more detailed advice. I would be glad to answer any questions you may have. I can be reached at 847-756-4900 or by email at ahmed@gregoryandlai.com.
