Want to separate from my husband. And keep custody of the child.


I want to get separate from my husband, but my daughter should live with me, I am working and doing savings also for my baby. There are lots of issues in between us so I don want to spoil my child with him. Please advise for my baby should permanently live with me, I am staying with my parents since January 2015 and doing all expenses by my own. Its our love marriage, I am Hindu & he is Buddhist, in 2009 we got married, we have 9 years gap in between us. We don't come up on one opinion for any single topic, there are so many fighting and I really don want to stay with him along with my baby.
