For 6 years Eric was scared to try to get joint custody because he had Owen every weekend and he was always told dads only get EOW.

It took BM landing in rehab and basically abandoning her child for 6 months in order for Eric to get full, and then joint, and not worry about the outcome.

I think a lot of people think the kids are better off with mom. It's sad to me that dads only tend to get joint if mom has screwed up somehow.

I am a firm believer that a dad deserves to have just as much time with his kid as mom.

Eric believes the first few years or so, yes, mom is more important. Thats just natural. But once the kid is potty trained, has some independence, and isn't relying on mom all the time, then time with dad is equally important.
