Ordinarily, full custody, rather than joint legal custody, is relatively rare now, even for biological children, unless the other parent is unfit, and that takes a pretty serious situation. Many courts will treat a "psychological parent" equally with a biological parent, and you get that status by having done everything a parent does for a child. You should also be aware that many courts prefer to keep siblings together. If the children are old enough, their wishes will be considered, too. The bottom line is (or should be), always, the best interests of the children.
