it may not even get to a judge, they often have a chance to talk before hand. The judge listens, sometimes asks questions its not a law and order cross examination more for clarification as the judge has the reports in hand.
I would guess they would get an order of some time that will either be permanent or temporary until next court date or until the order is varied.
Mostly these situations come up IMO when the father wants more custody than the mother wants to give him or when a parent suspects some form of abuse neglect. Often they are just spiteful or lumped in with sticky financial child support or spousal support recommendations as custody determines support levels in some areas.
family court can be pretty dull actually...
kids are rarely called upon as theyve done an evaluation correct
if the father wants more time, genuine wants it and is stable he will probably get 50-50....if mom is stable and supporting herself.....most judges tend to be preretirement old dudes around here.....
they usually are pretty conservative if he wants 50-50 but the kids are young then they might make a temp order to give her more until the kids are a certain age....
but its a gamble, the judge can make decisions that do not sit well, custody could be awarded to either parent its a dice roll....where a father wants to be involved has a stable income I have seen them win over SAHM who are asking for support in terms of custody....
