according to your querry you can get relief from court. As you agains recoverted into muslim and your wife also changed the religion thus muslim law will prevail in your case. however you have to prove the conversion

Hi...
You can get divorced by the Muslim law as your last registered marriage was done according to Muslim law only. Also it would be more convenient for you to get divorce under Muslim law.
Also, if your wife files a suit against you then she’ll also ask the court to provide her maintenance and will ask for the child’s custody. You can either settle the matter outside the court or can fight in the court.
