What do I need to do in order to get sole custody of my child?

Since joint custody is commonly thought to be in the best interest of a child, gaining sole custody of a child can be exceedingly difficult to achieve when the child’s other parent wishes to retain custody. As such, you will need to prove to the court that it is in the best interest of your child that you alone retain custody. To prove that, you must typically demonstrate that the child’s other parent has alcohol or drug abuse issues, a documented history of dangerous behavior or violence, is incapable of properly caring for the child, or mentally incapable of caring for the child altogether.
