    That type of text may come up as evidence in court. But we don't know the context, what the current order is, what childish acts she's alleging, what other evidence may be out there, etc.

    The court decides custody based on the best interests of a child. Usually it's in a child interests to have both parents involved if they want to be. And it doesn't look good for one parent to use withholding a child as way to "get" the other parent. But it also doesn't look good if some parent indeed is acting childish. And it very much can be in a child's best interests to not be around inappropriate parental behavior.

    Only rarely would a parent go start an entire custody modification filing around a single text.

    Of course he can, yes.

    Nope.  The text is not proof that the mother if unfit, thus any challenge of custody would be moot.  Mom is not required under law to be sugar and spice and everything nice.

    As long as what's redacted isn't the child's name and she's not in violation of a custody order she'll probably be okay. But seriously, for the sake of the child she and this guy need to put their own egos away and focus on being parents instead of exes.
