yes my wife is leaving next week and are going to seperate and get a divorce. i want 50 percent custody of my 8 year old son, she is telling me i will only get him every other weekend. i want him one week and then she gets him a week at a time. i love my son with all my heart and want him to be with me, just not 2 weekends a month. i also want her to have him also so i want joint custody.
when she leaves next week i am going to change the locks on the house. i do not know where to start or where to go to get custody of my son. i rent the house where i am at and i have provided her with a vechile to drive. i also pay for his medical and insurance co pays and after school day care. i have no idea on how much i would have to pay her in child support, i make about 5000 gross a month and she makes about 2000 a month gross.
i would like to know if i can get joint custody of my son, i dont believe she can tell me what she wants and keep him from me. i have no lawyer, she has told me she has one but i have not received anything from one. i was wondering if i can go to the court house and talk to a magistrate or somebody to help me on what to do.
she is the one moving out, not me. she plans on taking my son and i do not know what i can do until i guess we go to court or a mediatior person.
i found her cheating on my with anothe man, i know it proubly does not matter but that is why we are going to get a divorce.
please if anybody can help, i need it.
