    Hi, I’ve just registered on thus forum, I’m a new single dad to my 12 week old daughter.

    Social services are involved due to my wife’s mental history, and history with men, but there is no concerns regarding me.

    I am thinking of asking for sole custody myself, as my ex wife keeps threatening to get sole custody herself unless I do what she wants (for thing like contact arrangements), is this costly, and how long can it take?
