First, I would point out that most Courts would say that no one “wins” a custody case. The question asked by the Court is, generally, what is best for the child.
Next, I would argue that, in theory, the person who is the best parent is usually the one who is looking out for the child, rather than the one constantly strategizing about how to win. Parents can do better in custody cases if the Court can see that they are following the orders, not talking badly about the other party with the child, and trying to promote the overall well-being of that child.
I think that when people become too hung up on “winning”, it ultimately can cause them to shift their focus off of the most important thing, which is their children.
