Custody of Children

New MessageCustody of Children (modified 0 times) clove
Appreciate if anyone could assist me.

I have 2 children aged 2 1/2 years and 1 year old. The father and I are not married.
I would like to know what I need to do to file for custody of my 2 children. I can't afford a lawyer, how can i do it myself?

After reading through malaysian child custody laws, it is my understanding in a case of no marriage, malaysian courts automatically award the children to the mother. Hope this helps

Hi Remora,referring to your statement of "malaysian child custody laws, it is my understanding in a case of no marriage, malaysian courts automatically award the children to the mother".

Is there any exceptional case? For example, the mother have divorce record with 1 child. However, she didn't take care the child properly. I.e. Leave the child with parents who stayed in other state and hardly back to visit them.

Further, the mother do not have strong income compare to the husband?

illegitimate child is awarded to mother but what if mother has not been taking care of her but the father did? what if mother is drug abuser with arrest warrant? what if mother denied visitation rights to father? what if mother tells child father is dead? would the court award the child to her still?
