My ex & I current have joint legal/ physical custody w/him having residency for school purposes only.We switch every other week.Last yr due to the divorce, I was unemployed,in foreclosure, etc.I'm now full time employee, college graduate (B.A.),own stable residence. My 6 yr old has told the counselor about her dad burning her with cigarette in several places and telling her to lie about it (reported to DSS)The teacher has notice a change in her social behavior.The school n my district is superior bc its a magnet school.I'm more of an active parent, he isnt. He is a FT employee &student.He goes to school 3 nights/wk, 1 of which is his mid-week visitation with his child.Hes "on-call" at work a lot. Our child is often at daycare or with his parents.Whats my chances of gaining primary custody?
