I'm in the Military.Last year I was deployed in Iraq for six months.Prior to my deployment, I had physical custody of my kids and their Dad had them two weekends out of the month.During my deployment,my ex had temporary physical custody of the girls. After i returned from Iraq, we both went to court. There was a court evaluation done and the evaluator recommended that my kids stay with their Dad. My ex brought letters to court from my kids teachers saying that they are doing well in school. I thought I was going to die when the Judge awarded him physical custody of the girls that day.My problem also was that I don't have any family living near me and he has his parents and silings within minutes. I'm now appealing the descision.What are my chances of winning the appeal?. Please advise me!I love my girls and I want them back. can the courts legally hand custody over to him based on my work sittuation?. It's not Fair!
