You do realize this is how it generally goes right? In divorce negotiations there are only really two commodities of value:

1. Time with kids
2. Dollars

In order to get one, you usually have to sacrifice the other. I'm not saying it's right or fair, but I can SERIOUSLY put an exact price in dollars and cents on what it cost me to have joint custody vs letting her have sole custody.

My lawyer tried to warn me this is how it always go early on, and they were definitely correct.
