Each case is fact specific. The general rule of thumb that courts are reluctant to take a child from their mother is not true anymore. The court will look to the best interests of the child. If being with the mother and you is in the best interests of the child than that is what the court will ask for.

Pretty much as often as the judge decides it is appropriate and in the best interest of the child(ren) after all evidence is presented by clients, counsel, court advocates, guardians, etc.. One of the factors every judge considers is each parent's willingness to support the child(ren)'s relationship with the other parent. Here, your public statements against the mother of your children would weigh against you in that regard.
