Custody

Updated: 
August 15, 2019

If I have moved away from the house where the father and children currently live, will this hurt my chances of gaining custody?

It depends. If you left because the other parent committed an act of domestic or family violence against you, a judge will most likely not hold it against you in a custody hearing.
