Do you have any advice for a dad who really wants to divorce his wife but is scared of losing his children in the process?
How do I remain a part of my children's lives during and after the divorce process?

The first question you have to ask yourself is, "Why am I modifying my child’s schedule?" Children, especially young children, need stability in their lives. That is often why it is so difficult to even get the initial parenting plan worked out; it is intended to last.
My wife and I are in the midst of a custody battle for our child. The Guardian ad Litem is currently doing a case study. The one question I keep having is why my wife's schizophrenia is not a factor in the custody determination?
I have been told since she has never hurt anyone this isn't an issue and can't be used in court to help determine what is in the best interest of our child.
How is her medically diagnosed condition of schizophrenia not a factor? That doesn’t make any sense!
I have been divorced for thirteen years. We have a seventeen year old daughter and a fourteen year old son. Both of our children have had a considerable drop in their school grades through the past four years. In fact, my daughter has recently been caught by police with alchohol, cigarettes, and pot!
Mom does not want to deal with it. I want to have a gaurdian ad litem involved . How can I do this?
I am also concerned of the new stepfather's police history. Mom implies that he has a history of sexual misconduct, but that he is better now. Any advice as to how I can get this information and what I should do to deal with this problem once I have it?
