Hi. I'd like to know when and how child's costody is determined. As far as I understand it is after divorce is approved, not before then, right?At the moment our child lives with me, but his farther wants to prove that I am unfit mother and wants to take his full costudy. Can you tell me what would be the process of him provind that he can take the boy to live with him, I imagine it would cost a lot of money for lawyers. I believ I have to hire a lawyer myself and I am so worried that it would cost a fortune and I don't know how I will be able to afford this. I am full time working, I am paying for childcare, farther is not evn paying child support so I had to call child support agency to ask getting money out of him. he just hates me so much and wants to destroy me.
I am going to file divorce first based in unreasonable behaviour and start the process.I am also worried that when his farther takes child with him overnight or stay with him few times a week he might not give him back to me and until child's costudy is not determined, what will I be able to do in case this happens?
Child is 3 years old and we are not living together since August 2013
