Greetings. You fell in the trap of trying to get your agreement done quick and cheap and agreed with him on custody, and now you are paying the attorney fees you did not want to pay before, PLUS SOME probably.
Now, yes it is usually better for each child to have their own room. Get married or move him out. That is the deal on live in boyfriends and girlfriends…as we live in a conservative state.
Finally, the court’s like to maintain the status quo for children. They do not like to have them bounce between homes etc., so your best argument for joint custody or full custody is that they come to your home every day and it would be more stable for them to stay until the next morning. Best of luck.
