How can I get sole custody?
Sole custody is difficult to achieve in a divorce because joint custody is often seen as being in the best interests of the child. However, some situations may warrant the granting of sole custody, whether physical, legal, or both, to one parent. Sole custody is usually considered when one of the parents has issues with drug abuse or alcoholism, a history of violence or dangerous behavior, is neglectful or puts the child in dangerous situations, or is mentally unstable.
