When a Judge decides on the custodial parent, its usually not about whether one or the other parent has a GED or no college degree... it's usually about who would be the better NURTURING parent. If you don't know what nurturing a child means, look it up on line. Women are usually better at nurturing their kids; however, this doesn't mean YOU can not do it! And it seems like your ex's life is complicated. Your ten-year old son might have the opportunity to voice his desire about which parent he'd like to live with, also. You will have to talk with your attorney about this. If the Judge feels the boy is old enough to make a decision, the Judge will speak with your son privately, in his Chambers about his wishes. Again, see what your attorney thinks. In most states, kids need to be at least 12 years old, but i'm sure there can be exceptions from time to time.

Don't do that to your kid unless he hates his mom(without your input). My parents got divorced and if one of them ever did that I'd be heartbroken. Put your feelings about her aside and think of how your kid feels. Try for 50-50 custody, not full. :(

Your chances are pretty high based on what you wrote. They usually look at two things: 1. Financial stability. 2. Emotional stability. 3. --> this is the last resort and usually for older kids: who the child chooses.
