Q: My son father is seeking joint custody but i want sole custody is there any way as a mother i can be granted that? If anyone can look at my court papers because i was recently served and not fulling understanding whats going to happen.
A: David's Answer: While joint custody is encouraged as a settlement, it's rarely imposed. The Court would have to believe that, despite the differences between the two of you, same can be set aside when it comes to the kids. If he's the one who wants joint custody, it'd be his burden to prove the case.
