My name is Mahesh ,I have separated from my wife 2 yrs back.. In between I went to see my children. My wife used this opportunity to file a 498a case against me,my brother and my parents in my home town. At this juncture I filed a divorce case and for a child custody case. My children live with their mother in chennai and I live in my native place (Trichy). They numbered my divorce petition and say that I have to apply for child custody where the children reside that is chennai, where she is working in OCF..If I file it in chennai, there is a possibility of transfer of the case to chennai and It will take further 1 yr to visit my kids.
We both hail from the same place and got married in Trichy where she complained in the police station reg dowry harassment and DV
If there is any citation or ruling that I can apply for child custody or visitation where I applied my divorce it will be much appreciated.
