Potential Custody Battle

Submitted by drewdeems on Thu, 10/10/2013 - 16:35



  I came here hoping someone can help me. My wife of 5 years (together 9 total) is thinking about divorce. Through this, I have found that I needed to grow up a lot and have started going to counseling (which is helping a great bit, but everyday I am and can improve). My issue is she is now pregnant with our second child and about a week or two before we found out she started smoking again, to the tune of 2-3 cigs a day. Since she found out and confirmed via hospital that yes there is another bundle of joy coming, she is up to 5-6 cigs a day. Would this affect a child custody battle? I only ask because if she is willingly doing this to our growing baby, what would she do to our first child (age 3 1/2)?


Thanks and have a great day
