Hello I am a male but would like some advice from the women here. I have a son, he originally was staying with his mother so she has full custody and I'm paying child support. When he was a baby child services was involved in his life twice. Both times included a fight that broke out with his mother and a boyfriend of some kind. I then wanted him into a better school so he started to stay with me. Now he's been with me for 3 years I take him to the doctor, to school, to the dentist, signed him up for baseball and swimming. Anyways through this time I have been paying child support. Today I met with a lawyer on sole custody because every time my son goes to her house he comes back sad. He then tells me that his mother was fighting with her boyfriend again. Truthfully I feel bad for going for sole custody. I feel kind of bad for taking him away from his mother. I guess I'm looking for advice if I am doing the right thing or not. Thank you.
