If your wife files for divorce, you will not get custody of your daughter and under law the natural guardian of a girl child is the mother and in any case, any child under the age of 5, the custody is with the mother.

Its called the Tender Age Rule. But having said that, if your wife files for divorce, you can always file an application for visitation of the child.

In addition you can file a Petition for restitution for conjugal rights if you want your wife back.

To bring ur wife back u can fiile a suit and in case of divrce proceedings u can ask for ur daughters custody u will certainly get right to meet ur child but as to custody usually it goes in favour of mother except in exceptional cases

you can file restitution of conjugal rights petition for her return. divorce has nothing to do with custody. however asking custody of a child below 5 years that to a girl child is very difficult for father.
