My husband in another city, 10 hours drive wants the custody of our 22 months daughther 2 weeks of the month. Our dauther is goind to child center where she learns decipline and is around other kids her age all day. My husband is working full time and wants his 60 yr old mom to baby our daughter for two weeks of the month. Any chance that the court decide to his favor? I am part time colledge student.

The court can go one of three ways: Full custody to you, full custody to father, or joint custody. The thing is the child need to have a relationship with both parents. And at 22 months of age or nearly 2, a child can go stay over night with no problems. What is your problem with this?

I split with my first husband when my youngest we 13 months and we did shared care from the start. We did live close by but we did a week about. He would have them for 1 week and then I would have them for a week.
She's old enough to get to know her Dad and if he wants to take it to court he will probably get it.
You can't dictate what happens when he has her as well. That's up to him.
Unfortunately, this is what happens when parents split up. Kids are more adaptable than you realize and if she starts doing it early then it almost becomes normal.

I am sorry, since I was writing in a rush, I missed some info. We are divorced, I moved when I was one month pregnant but none of us knew that I was pregnant. My question was more about the age of my daughter. She is only 22 months. Right now, her dad gets her on the weekends but he wants to have her two weeks in every month. When she is with me, she goes to daycare where there are trained teachers but if he gets her 2 week every month, his 60 years old mom will babysit her in the house. I am very concerned about her young age being away from her mom and her friends and teachers for two weeks every time.

He has every right to have shared custody. It would work out better to do it in bigger blocks since he lives so far away so yes he can.
Did you move or did he? Are you separated or divorced (you say he's your husband)?
You can't deny him having a relationship with his daughter and unless he abusive or a drug addict then the courts will probably give him shared custody.
