I come from a good financial background and can afford my child's wellbeing and future. He also wants to stay with me if we get separated. If I file for custody, what are the chances that i will get it in my favor?

We have gone through your query. We can very well try and seek custody of son through court by filing petition for custody. As your wife is not handling son with due care regarding his schooling, this can be a ground for custody along with other  grounds which are issues of divorce too.

Even in divorce petition we can ask visiting and custody interim rights. Custody matters are delicate onces and orders can be varied from time to time if custody petitions are filed by either of spouse.
