I am a working NRI mom living outside of India with my husband of Indian nationality and my 2 yr old son who was born abroad and holds foreign nationaltiy like me. We have been married for 2 years, where our wedding was solemised in India. Since past few months we have had bitter arguments where my husband is extremely abusive verbally, has hit me twice and is an alcoholic. He uses foul language towards me and my family and threatens to harm us before he leaves here to go back to India. I am afraid all these fights will affect my son as he gets very afraid when he sees us arguing. He has said that he will file for divorce in India and take my son away from me. He family is wealthy and so he has not worked because of that. While living abroad with me here he has still not worked either, where our plan was that he will try and start his career here. But, he said that he does not want to work as I am an uncaring mother and he needs to look after the child, he said he will use while completing the divorce proceedings. I do everything here from my daily chores to working to looking after my son when I am back from work.
I would be obliged if I could be adviced of sound decision, that can my husband take my son away from me? I love my son dearly and cannot even think of loosing him.
Your advice is much appreciated.
