What is the name of your state? Maryland
My wife who suffers from paranoid schizophrenia and has been off of medication for 7 months is in the process of filing for divorce. Her mental illness is well documented and it includes 4 suicide attempts and numerous hospital stays in the last 11 years. She has also had difficulty working due to her illness.
My question is if I contest the divorce and ask for full custody of my two kids, how much if any of an advantage do I have considering her mental illness history and her current state of being off of medication? Will the judge order her to be evaluated by a Phsyciatrist to determine her mental fitness?
I would appreciate a reply as quickly as possible.
