Are there any bipolar child custody cases where the bipolar parent has won custody
I was divorced 12 years ago and was diagnosed bipolar 18 years ago. I had two hospitalizations prior to the divorce. Many can relate arriving in cuffs. I have custody of our three children. He has visitation. My xhusband didn't make a big deal about my bipolar disorder until 4 years after the divorce. His wife still calls me crazy all the time and I think he just didn't want to pay the support. I was told by my attorney that a court would not take them from me as I take my meds and I'm under routine care by the usual. Phyciatrist and MD etc. It would be a long costly battle for anyone to take children away from someone that has a disability. It is truly a disability and it is not your fault. Stay on your meds for the sake of the children - They need you. Make sure you go for adjustments when you don't feel well. Stay strong.
