Not every case can or will result in sole custody for one parent. All you can do is the best you can and hope the court agrees. You should at least consult with an attorney to see if it is possible to have them represent you.

The courts decide custody and visitation based upon the best interests of the children, not the sex of the parent. Often times the father is not involved in the up bringing of children because he is off working while the mother is home taking care of the children. Naturally, the best interests of children of young ages subjected to divorcing parents is not to hand them over to the father who then puts them in a day care full time where some unknown people supervise them amongst a crowd of other kids. Not to mention the emotional and mental anguish. What is going on with the mom. You fail to state anything about what the mom is doing and why the mom does not have them with her. You also fail to mention the age of the children and what type of relationship they have had with their mother. It is the totality of the circumstances and the court’s ultimate goal of doing what is in the child’s best interests which will govern the destination of custody and visitation . If it is with you, then you need to be prepared to tell the court why an order for custody with you is in their best interests when your intent is to put them in day care all day.
