I can almost guarantee that her depression will have no bearing on custody and I doubt the judge would force her to get help. If she's not on meds now you have no proof of the depression and if she is then it will show she's getting help. A catch 22. Find an attorney who isn't afraid to fight.

BTW--there is a former poster from these boards who is in NE and has joint legal and 50/50 physical placement of his kids, so it can be done.

Yes, i would guess that everyone's situation is different. What I've been told was since she was a stay-at-home mom for 11 of the 12 years that we've been married, that makes her the primary care-giver.

As far as the depression, she admits to it when she thinks she should be given allowance for it and denies it when she thinks it will hurt her. I think she is buying another doctor to give her a clean assessment because I got a phone call message reminding her of an appointment with 'Mike' tomorrow. When I asked if there was a contact number the number they gave me, I googled and it was a doctor that she hadn't seen before.

BTW, how do I ditch my lawyer? I was told that other lawyers would not consult with me if I still had my lawyer under retainer. Is this true?

I'm really starting to lose faith based on the feedback that I've gotten here, and the fact that in order to file a cross complaint on my wife's temporary order which will be heard on the 17th I need to get mine filed tomorrow. So she's meeting with me at 2:30pm to put it together.

In most areas lawyers will do a free consult before you retain them. When you meet with your attorney ask her how hard she is going to fight. She is employed by YOU to act in your best interest. To retain an attorney who believes that the kids belong with mom only is NOT in your best interest and you have to be able to tell her that. Tell her that if she does not believe you have a chance to refer you to an attorney who has experience with Father's rights in your area. Do not ever lose faith or you've lost your case before you start.

I'm not going to sit here and tell you that you'll win. I lost a case to change 50/50 to me having primary physical custody and my x having supervised visits until his probation was over after he was arressted and plead guilty to possession of child p0rn. I was told that the case was a no brainer but the judge, GAL and social worker saw no reason to limit his contact. In the end his PO took away his rights and he has no access to the kids for the time being (that's worse than what I was asking for) My point is don't get cocky but don't lose faith either.

What state do you live in that would maintain 50/50 custody to a child [censored] parolee?
