I know that the courts tend to favour the mother in custody cases, but in what instanced does the father have a chance? I personally think that she is emotionally unstable, she attempted to kill herself about 3 years ago. Our son is 9 months old and divorce is innevitable. If custody is awarded to the mother, what type of arrangement would be offered to the father, if any? Or would it be strictly at the discretion of the mother? I'd get weekends, two weeks per month... what are the scenarios?
