Can I get custody if I am unemployed?
Hello, my husband and I are divorcing, we have a court hearing on January 9th 2019, we have a one-year-old child together and we will have joint custody, he is working and living abroad, I am unemployed. I wish to know how I can get custody. I plan on finding employment after the court hearing.
Parents have joint parental care only if they have jointly completed a joint parental care plan approved by the court. If they failed to complete the said plan, the court makes a decision with whom the child will live, meetings and socializing and alimony, then that parent is awarded parental care. If the father is abroad and is unable to meet the content of his parental care, the mother may seek independent parental care from the court.
