Once a divorce is final, can a mom lose physical custody of her kids for being a poor manager of her money?

I don't know how to budget.

No. Not unless the poor management of money means that the children do not have their basic needs such as a home, utilities and food. As long as you are taking care of your kids, and they are not being abused, get yourself a financial advisor and call it a day.

Courts are very reticent to take custody away from the mother for any but the most serious of reasons. Not being able to budget is not a good enough reason unless it somehow seriously affects the kids negatively.
