How likely

Domestic Violence is taken very seriously by the court. Where custody is at issue, the judge will certainly take any evidence relevant to what is in the best interest of the children. There really is no “normal” outcome, as each matter is determined according to what is best for the children given the particular facts of each family. Good luck.

is it that the father gets joint-custody in a Domestic Violence situation, where he has physically hurt the kids as well.

Is it normal for them to get joint-custody, or is it most likely that they only get visitation.
