A: Yes, it is certainly possible. North Dakota Century Code Chapter 14-09 deals with child custody. The court heavily weights the twelve best interest factors as stated under NDCC 14-09-06.2. I hope this helps!

A: "Full" custody is usually reserved for extreme circumstances. You should contact a family lawyer for help.
