My spouse says I don't make any money, so I can't win custody. Is that true?
That's absolutely not true. When a court is looking at which parent is going to be the primary conservator, a parent's job status really doesn't have much to do with it. Whether or not you're employed or working at all has no impact on your ability to be the primary caretaker of your child. And in fact, if you're not working or you have been the primary caregiver and so you're not working because you've been the primary caregiver, the court is going to take that into consideration. The court is going to be looking at which parent is better able to be the primary caretaker of the parent. And if that happens to be you and you're not working, trust me, the court is going to make sure that you have enough child support to supplement what assets and resources you do have to make sure that you're taken care of and the children are taken care of.
