Are you aware of any specific cases where a father with disabilities got custody from a normal mother of an 11-year-old? Or is it silly to even ask such a question, because there's no chance in hell?It seems like a reasonable assumption that a disabled father with limited resources would be stupidly wasting those resources fighting for custody against a normal mother. The other answers should clarify why it might not be stupid after all. If they don't, they're not really answering the question. Some fights aren't worth fighting because they aren't winnable, regardless of how unfair the situation is. Wouldn't a wise father save his money to buy stuff for his child instead of foolishly wasting it on an unwinnable battle?
