I want to file for 50/50 custody as the child’s mother has told him she tried to commit suicide and she has introduced their child to many different men and I am worried about her stability and the effects this is having on our yoinh child. I have always been accommodating and supported her with whatever she wanted to do however she’s refusing to meet me in the middle on simple things. We separated before they were born The mother has another younger child who has 50/50 custody with their dad. However, does this mean i would have to get a new job? Or am i able to get support form my new partner of 3 years with one or two pick ups from nursery or watch the child for a few hours if I have to pop out or am late back from work. Thank you

Lewis, plenty of people work full time and manage to look after a child. (I do 100%, it just takes a bit of organising)
Apply for 50:50 contact if that’s what you would like. If the court agrees, on your days, you could use a childminder or nursery close to your work. Drop little one off on the way in and pick up on the way home. Or you could ask your partner to do a pickup if you were late. Also you could ask your employer for flexible working. How you organise childcare on your days would be up to you.
It sounds like your little one could do with both parents being fully involved. Good luck.
