I have been married for 9 yrs now. i have a 3 year old child. my husband had been abusive towards me from the very beginning of our marriage. i literally had been a slave to him. just to save my marriage i gave in to all forms of cruelty mostly mental torture. he will distort facts, lie and insult me in front of all relatives and friends. its enough for me now, i can't take it any more. what is the legal steps involved for separation and how to get the custody of my only child. my parents are well off. even i can get a job. pls inform the legal formalities involved.
If you really do not want to continue with your marriage and your parents are supportive enough to take care of your decision and you are capable enough to find a job..then WHY WAIT..Take your child and live with your parents..and find a Job and start Working...Let him file a case of divorse..You only need to put a case of domestic voilence or maintenance... EVERYTHING WILL BE ALL RIGHT ..RESPECT YOUR DIGNITY..

the legal steps you can take is you can file criminal case againsst him under section 498 A for cruelty as well as mental torture simultaneoulsy u can file domestic violence complaint also. for getting rid of him u need to file divorce petition in the family court. child will remain with you if u prove in the court that u r capable of taking care of ur child.
