Mexican Law/types of child custody


my wife is divorcing me after 15 years of marriage. she is asking for CUSTODIA DEFINITIVA of our 2 sons ages 10 and 17(the older one is adopted). will this take away all my legal rights to make any decisions about my sons futures? are there other types of custody where i can retain a legal voice as to what happens with my sons, such as shared custody? she has physical possession of them and that is not a problem (as of now)because i believe they should live together with her. this split is more or less amicable, more on her side than mine and i see my kids every day. i just don't want to give away any rights i have now to someone i can no longer trust. thank you for your time.

Before anything else, thanks for writing me at

Ok, where is the case? In BCS?

If divorce was 15 years ago, what is the status of custody now?

If you want, let me know it please.

Thank you very much for visiting me at
