We had our last day of trial and the judge is expecting both parties to provide proposed judgments (I am Pro Se , she is represented by a lawyer).
So far the judge granted her Sole custody (as we all know there is a total bias towards females in the state of Massachusetts) for no good reason.
My question is, does joint custody always mean the father is to see his children 50% of the time or can it be 20-30%. Also, I heard that if I do not fight for 50% now prior to the decree being written (I think that's what its called) - chances are I will never receive it in the future.
I will not be able to be with my son more than 25-30% of the time (only working parent) in the next 2-3 years. Hypothetically, If I get 50% but do not exercise it - will I be looked upon negatively by the court?
