That depends. The term one needs to look for is Joint Custody. With joint custody no parent has more power than the other, and they are by law to make decisions together. When they don't what your dad did is the outcome.

I know it is hard to watch the fight between your parents but they are frustrated with each other. Sometimes frustrated people do weird things. They just don't believe that each is trying to do what they think is best with the information they have.

Keep your chin up, and try to not let it interfere with the best you can do given what information you have.
