Anyways, have you looked into seeing if you would qualify for legal aide? Well, if it's available in your state anyways. You are definatly going to need a lawyer if you are going to go for full custody because the burden of proof will be on you to prove that she is unfit to have custody of the children.

You still have to pay a legal aid laywer (at least I did) and mine was useless. I would suggest taking a loan if you have to, but get a good laywer.

Also, keep a journal (hidden) regarding incidents wih your wife and her illness. This can be used as evidence at trial, if needed.
