I have consulted with a child psychologist in the past who's husband is a Family Law attorney and she said that in the Courts view, while he may express bad judgment, as long as he stays clean, (which he claims he is doing and it is hard for me to know otherwise), having bi polar and being otherwise irresponsible, is no reason to take away a man's rights to be with his children.
Just don't don't tell the guys over there on the "I Don't Feel Comfy" thread that the courts are equally in favor of men being with their children after divorce, cuz they'll never believe you, or else just claim it's an isolated incident!
However, I do have a consult with an attorney next week because of some new developments.
