Showing Good Faith & Responsibility in Court
Logic provides that you cannot take care of another human being if you cannot take care of yourself. If you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or are otherwise unfit to provide full care to your child, the odds will be against you. The court strives to place a child with an adult who is fit to be a parent, so it is important to improve and maintain a high degree of physical, psychological and emotional health.
Refusing cooperation with the other parent or creating conflict based off of any issue between you and the other parent can be interpreted as the alienation of your child. The health and happiness of our child comes before any past altercations you may have had with your ex-spouse, so maintaining a healthy communication with the other parent will benefit everyone's situations. Last but not least, do not attempt to relocate your child without permission, as it can severely jeopardize your chances of custody while risking the accusation of kidnapping.
