Dear client,

Firstly I want to suggest you because you have 2 children hence you must give one more opportunity to your wife. so firstly you have to file case of restitution of conjugal right u/s 9 Hindu marriage act. If she is not come back then you can file divorce petition. And for custody of minor child, The court gives their decision on child custody based on various aspects that deal with the welfare of the child. Usually the mother gets custody of minor child.

Dear client,
You have legal options :

1*You can file habeas corpus writ petition in the high court of your state directly if you want to get your wife and your children back.* You can move this writ petition only for your children also.*

2* you can file restitution of the conjugal right u/s 9 of hindu marriage act in your district court.* If your wife living saperately.

3* you can file divorce in your district court by metual consent under section 13(B) of hindu marriage act. * if your wife is also ready for divorce.*

4* you can file divorce without her (your wife) consent in your district court u/s 13 of hindu marriage act.

But I will advise you to move habeas corpus writ petition first.

You can communicate me by phone call for better advise.
