Helping your own custody case can be quite an ordeal, but it is possible with effort and determination. For child custody related issues the odds in most cases are against the father. The father in most cases is the non-custodial parent, unless the mother is an unsuited parent.
The most suited way to prevail over your custody dispute when it moves towards an evaluation would be to prove that you are a good parent for your child. When proving to be a suited parent avoid putting the other parent down, you can point out the faults of your ex-wife especially if she is an unsuited mother but donít talk ill about her at any time. You should keep in mind that when you talk ill about the other parent, you would be on the loosing edge for your custody battle.
When handling your custody case, the court would see to the best interest of the child at all times.The decision would be in your favour if you have an active role in the following activities of your child:
In almost all cases you would get the custody of your children, if your wife has committed adultery and was into substance abuse like drugs and alcohol. The court would also favour you if your wife has been an abuser, physical abuser, part of any criminal activity, suffered some kind of mental illness or has abandoned the children at any time. The court would see the moral character of the parent before making any sort of decision.
While awarding child custody it is the judge who would decide keeping in mind the benefits of the child.
You can have an edge over your ex-wife in your custody case, if you are able to improve your parenting skills and prove that you would be able to take proper care of your children under all circumstances.
