Financial responsibility and custodial parent
      10/04/04 05:14 PM

Will the court look at financial responsibility issue when determining the custodial parent ? Couple has 1 child - wife has 2 others from previous marriage. Wife makes way less than husband and wants to be custodial parent and receive hefty child support from husband. Husband has proof of wife's financial irresponsibility (both during the marriage and when wife was single) and wants to be custodial parent w/no child support from wife. argues that he would manage the resources that he would have to pay to the wife as child support more responsibly and that child would have a better life. They have agreed in principle to the mechanics of joint custody - the only sticking point is the custodial parent issue. Do courts give any weight to the "who's a more responsible financial mgr" question ?
