What can a father do?... - Page 2

post #21 of 23
That's great. Also, I've learned to not get hung up on the idea of "full custody." Our lawyer told us the term is pretty meaning less. Dh has "full custody" but dss has visitation with his mom 2-3 nights a week. So, even if the mom still has "custody" you could have "visitation" 3 nights a week or more. Really, whats the difference? No matter what you call it, you will still be in her life and she will be raised by ALL her parents.

Good to hear that you're feeling better and thinking about moving closer. Even if the custody situation doesn't work out as you want -- when your sd grows up and looks back on her childhood I have to believe it will mean a lot to her to know that you and her father made the effort to do the right thing and be close to her.

One thing I forgot to mention in my original posting was to suggest your husband contact/check out some father's rights groups. They may have access to resources or suggestions for someone in your husband's situation.

Good luck and best wishes to your family.

I think you've made a very brave and wise decision And the right one
