I wish that was always the case. Around here, whoever has money for the fancy lawyer of a judge pay-off gets the kid. My dad won custody of me and was never home and always doing things with random women in the house I shouldn't have been seeing at 4 years old. Hopefully that's not the case for you, OP. I'm sure a lot has changed since their divorce in 1995.
