My question involves a child custody case from the State of: California - Butte County
I’m kind of really worried b/c the father is saying that he’s pursuing 50/50 physical and legal custody, (because he wants to lower child support payments), and he resides in the same county but two towns over (about 45 minutes away). He recently moved. I know I've asked this before, but I need more clarification, specifically what is done in the state of California. What are the chances that I will get sole physical and legal custody of my son? And that the father will be awarded visitation while our son is still young, and in the future, once our son is older they can have overnight weekend sleepovers? We were never married nor did we live together. Would a mediator recommend to the judge what I am requesting?
Dad also just purchased a home, while I live in a two bedroom apartment.
