Hi there
I am 21 years old mother of a son and my husband is fighting for custody of his other son who has been abducted and was asked to pay ransom if he ever wants to see him again.
One of the problem he is facing is that the other party affirms I am too young to be mother and take care of his son if he gets custody.

How can I help him? What arguments can he use to confirm that a good mother has nothing to do with age?

Thank you for your advice

In custody cases, judges are used to one side trying to control all the aspects of the other side... like whether the other parent can date, who can be around the child, etc. The court doesn't rule based on what only one parent wants. Custody/visitation will be decided based on what the judge feels is best for the child. A judge can put restrictions on visitation if there's evidence that supports there would be a danger to the child by the parent or step-parent. But that has to be proven, it can't just be what the other parent wants.

Good luck to your family.

No it is not normal to question someone's ability to parent a child because no one is an absolute perfect and knowledgable parent to start with. We do not know what we are doing when a baby comes along but for the general common sense things. No one knows how to parent until they start to work on it when they become one. You would also have to be proven unfit to be around the child.

First, did he and the other mom have any custody agreements set up already? Child Support? Visitation?
