Roles reversed, I think that a man who abandoned their kids and moved away with a girlfriend would have a tough time trying to get 50/50 when there is no change in circumstances other than trying to avoid paying child support or in fact getting child support as a result.

The courts are biased though, so really not sure how it would play out given it's mom asking.

It is sad how cs is used. The days of "stay away and pay" are long gone.

I got 50/50 and joint custody. If the other parent wants a subsidy, they can get a part time job during the times the child is in the other's care. Courts favour a maximum contact principle. Unless there is a REAL reason or threat to the child, then the starting point is 50/50.

The 9 months will be the time the interim parenting order was signed. She left the kids in January 2018 and for the first two years they were primarily living with me. Only since June of this year were the kids spending the nights at her place.

I agree, if the roles are reversed then the man will have a very difficult time in getting 50 / 50 if he abandons the kids and did not play an active role when he moves out.
