My fiance recently got custody of his daughter on the grounds that her mother was smoking a synthetic marijuana product that caused mental illness and was not providing for her (the child was with her aunt - mom's sister before the custody change) and he just got a job that allowed him to afford to provide for the child. The child's mother is mentally ill to the point where she is on SSDI for the rest of her life. She just found a home to purchase on land contract and is speaking of fighting for custody? Are there any odds that she will get custody back being that she is mentally ill to the point where she cannot even work a job? How can she be trusted to raise a child? Also, she has only seen her daughter for 8 days since losing custody.
