No at all. He cannot snatch or take legal custody. (1) wish of the child, if he is mentally capable to understand what is good or bad for him, along with his welfare, is of paramount consideration, (2) Courts/State is Parens patriae of the child. So don't worry if your child wishes to stay with you, and be happy...

In mutual settlement the issue of child custody is amicably settled between parties where one party can hold physical custody of the minor child for reasonable longer period while other party has right to visit and keep child for fixed and agreed period of time.
The settlement of other issues like permanent alimony and maintenance , maintenance for child, issues like division of jointly held immovable property and cash etc and divorce by mutual consent etc get resolved. All terms and conditions should be done with help of senior and experienced lawyer in written format to be used in future by both parties as and when required.
