Your ex cab successfully file for child custody if he proves that your lack of income incapacitates your from providing for the child. He may prove that you are neglectful or an incompetent adult who cannot be left in the care of a child.
no!! only the family court judge decides that. make certain the judge knows everything that's good about you, snd why the child ought to be under your custody. if your attorney doesn't speak up for you ask the judge if you can make statements on your own behalf. working or not working doesn't determine the fitness of a parent. unless they are chronically unimployeed, in spite of really being able to find work. the best of luck on this.
