Child Custody


Dear ncsmith:

Greetings. This is not enough information to make any type of call on a child custody determination. Each child custody case must be reviewed for all relevant facts, not just mental issues. My suggestion is that you go and speak with an attorney about all the issues. Thank you.

The response posted above is based upon the limited factual information made available and is not intended as a full and complete response to the question. The only reliable manner to obtain complete and adequate legal advice is to consult with an attorney, fully explain your situation, and allow the attorney sufficient opportunity to research the applicable law and facts required to render an accurate opinion. The basic information provided above is intended as a public service but a full discussion with an attorney should be undertaken before taking any action.


What are the chances of a parent getting child custody if one dealt with severe depression and is seeking the medical attention needed (who believes should have custody) vs one who shows signs of borderline personality disorder/narcissm and is not seeking any medical attention (which is the one who perhaps will fight for custody)?
