Me and my xbf are going through custody right now. he wants 50/50 custody in order not to pay child support as he has no job anyways. Is this going to make a difference when they determine child support? He gets money from his mother every month. His attorney and himself are trying to push for full custody with me having weekend visitations what are the odds this would happen? I am not a drug addict, abusive, Im renting a small cottage where my son has his own room, and I am in college. He is trying to paint me as the bad parent, because he keeps our son mon-wed for preschool purposes. He is saying he is the primary care taker.
Your case calls out for you to speak to an attorney because your question does not rise to the level of a custody determination against you.

Is issues of custody / parenting time are simply too complex to provide a response in this forum that you can rely upon as there are simply too many details to review/consider.
As suggested by prior respondents, you should take the time to meet with an experienced family law attorney.
