Hello, I'm really trying to get all the support and wisdom that I can right now. I'm really concerned about getting full custody of my children.I have been a stay at home mom for 4 years and don't have a job. My fear is will a judge not give me my kids if I don't have a job?

Being a stay at home mom don't make you a bad mom to take your children. If that was the parenting plan for y'all when you both was together they shouldn't hold that against you.

Just make sure you've got an attorney on your side, Keyona.

Taking care of your kids IS a job. You may have to prove that you will be able to find a job and manage job & kids, but they don't hold it against you for being a SAHM

Not sure what state you live in, but if you have been a stay at home mom, that is your job and they won't hold it against you. Most courts want the kids to be with the parents 50/50 unless there are major issues and one of the parents can not be responsible for the children. My ex took me back to court after being divorced for 3 years, he wanted full custody because he was remarried and wanted the kids in a house full time that had both a mother figure and a father figure. I was scared and I had no reason to be. I was afraid that he would get the kids. Needless to say, the courts threw out his motion! It was a victory for the kids because no kid should ever have to be with out their parents. Hang in there.
