I gave my ex-wife custody of one of our two children in an uncontested divorce. She has our five year old and I have our twelve year old. My five year old stays with me every night along with my twelve year old which I have custody of. I feel like my ex-wife does not have a safe environment for either of our children, and I want to get custody of my five year old also. Do i have a chance and how do I go about it?
Any modification of custody is going to be based upon the specific and detailed facts of the case. There is not enough information and facts provided in your question to assess the chance of success. Generally the standard to modify custody is difficult. The fact that you have custody of one sibling is a positive factor. If you can show that the child is truly unsafe at mother's residence you would have a good change of custody. You should retain an attorney and explore filing a Motion to Modify custody.
