International divorce - custody of child who is a British citizen
I am an Indian citizen, married to British citizen for 3 years. We have a 2 year old who is a British citizen. We got married in Dubai, UAE. What are the possible outcomes of divorce in this case? I do not want to leave my son, and neither does my husband. But I doubt I can or want to stay in the UK following the divorce. What are the recourses and points I should keep in mind before applying for a divorce.

Hello , I hope you are doing well, and I am sorry to hear about your situation. - Regarding the possible outcome of divorce, the court will automatically decide in the divorce ruling to establish joint custody of the child equally between the father and mother until the child reaches the age of (16) after which the child has the right to choose their custodian. -Either of you can object to the joint custody ruling if justifications are available. - In case that you and your ex husband do not agree on how to divide the custody ,the court shall determine how to divide it. -Either the father or the mother can request the removal of the other party from the joint custody in cases of (child at risk of domestic abuse, inadequate living conditions/behavioral or mental problems the other party suffers from ,etc) - keep in mind that in case of joint custody none of the parents may travel with the child abroad unless they obtain a written consent from the other party authorized by the court. - The father is obligated to spend on his children after the divorce , this includes education, resident fees and treatment. - The father is obligated to pay a housing allowance to his ex wife for the duration of joint custody of the children, but the court can exempt the father in a whole or in part if the from paying the housing allowance if the mother is financially able to rent or own a suitable housing that meets the needs of the children. I hope you find this useful. Kind regards, Mohamed Shain.
