My ex got his 2nd DUI within 2 years. I'm taking him back to court. What are my chances of getting full physical &legal custody?

When my ex picks up our son, they always visit at his parents house and my ex's parents house is a bad place to be. They have had 9 police calls within the last year. My son also sleeps on the floor when he stays overnight with his dad.

Sorry to hear what you're going through. It sounds like it is imperative that you speak with a family law attorney ASAP. I suggest using avvo to find a couple close to you and giving them a call - most should offer a free consultation and be able to answer your questions. Good luck.

Agreeing with Mr. Nielsen, I think it's imperative that you talk to a family law attorney. I would gather as much information as you can on your ex and the police calls to your ex's parents' home.

DWI's are not grounds for the award of sole custody. Commission of crimes is a factor that can be considered.
