It'll be okay. When my parents split up the hospital my mom works at gave her different hours so she wouldn't be away at night, just in the day. You'll be with your mom, don't worry. Courts prefer to keep the kids, male and female, with their mother unless there's extreme circumstances. He may get visitation rights though. Your mom will do fine. I'm sure she'll make enough income to keep you afloat. And your father will have to pay her money all of the time anyways. Child support, for sure. Unless you guys move I doubt you'll have to switch schools. Often times the mother will also get the house due to having the kids. Men really get the raw deal in these situations a lot of times. If anyone asks you anything about life with your dad, just be honest. Everything will be ok.
