My son's mother has been in and out of the hospital for several years now, but since the birth of our son 7 months ago, she has been in the hospital more than she has been home. She has a daughter from a previous relationship that I also am currently supporting. The situation has degraded to the point where I would like to get sole custody )or be named as the custodial parent) for my son and move from our home. What can I do? Will the state give me custody? Are her medical records enough? She is on a lot of medication and really doesn't take care of the kids. I take care of them when I'm home and have had to miss work a great deal for her health problems.
