My daughter is 9 months old. Her mother wants sole physical custody and wants to take the child to a neighboring country. She is attempting to prove me unfit by claiming I have an anger problem. Eventually she wants to take the child with her to Canada, where she has extended family.
A. How can I prevent her from moving, because she might never come back?
B. Does the outcome of the case depend on who files for child custody first? That is, should the father file for shared custody before the mother starts making accusations and building her case for sole custody?
C. What are the chances of getting shared parenting even though the child is less than 1 year old?We are married for 3 years, staying together. I work full time while she stays at home, does that make my case weaker?
