My stepsons mom recently moved to be closer to me and my fiance. She used the back support money from taxes. We are glad she's closer , we see the child more. However, she has custody. She works in a factory down here from 10pm until 6am. She sleeps from the time she gets off until around 2pm. So she has her child for about 4 days a week for roughly 6-8 hours a day and every other weekend. Point is, my fiance has him over half the time because she works at night and sleeps during the day. They have a custody case coming up. Is it likely the judge will see this as a reason to change the custody arrangement? To me it makes sense to change it as the child is with us over half the time and the court order specifically says if neither parent is available to watch the child then I have right of first refusal. I do not understand why the judge put that in the order. But it's there.
