A.As per the law mother is the natural guardian of a child and mostly she gets the custody unless it is proven that she is not capable and is of unchaste character. In your case since she has committed adultery so, her chances of getting the custody is minimal and also as your children are little grownup and they do not want to stay with her so in the court they can say that and you should in all probability get the custody of the children.

A.Court will ask daughters if they want to stay with her or you.
so if they tell that they dont want to stay with her then you will get custody order from court.
Also if you able to prove adultery then also she will not get custody.
Hopefully children can also be witness in divorce case to prove adultery if they seen anything.

A.Hi,
Your wife is having extramarital affairs and is committing adultery, and your children are over the age of five and willing to remain with you then the Court will grant you custody. When the child is above the age of 5, the courts recognise the child's opinion and willingness and only grant custody after considering their wellbeing.

A.In your case since your children are above 5 years of age obtaining custody by father is possible and also if you are able to prove adultery of your wife than adulterous wife is not required to paid any alimony or maintenance but considering the legal procedures involved and the current lockdown situation when Courts are not completely working your case might consume some time to reach final stage therefore if possible you are suggested to convince your wife to agree to mutual consent divorce if you can pay her some one time alimony or so and offer her visitation rights of the children at certain fix intervals. Thank you.

If you found this advice helpful then please provide review and give *****. Thank you.

A.Hi,
The consent of the children (above the age of 5 years) is considered while granting the custody. Since the children wants to stay with the father, the custody would be granted to the father.

A.No. After the age of 5 years, father is the natural guardian. You can also file petition under Hindu marriage Act for appointment of you as guardian. The opinion of children also matter. If you have direct evidence regarding adultery committed by your wife only then continue with charges otherwise amend petition into cruelty.

The courts in India makes sure that the child gets attention and affection of both the parents. The court gives the other parent visitation rights of which the conditions are determined by the court. Under Hindu law and as well as Secular law, the custody of the child under the age of five is usually awarded to the mother.

So, it is better if the child lives with you. Father can take custody of child after divorce . As per the laws on Indian child custody, both divorced parents have equal rights over the child even after legal separation. One parent winning custody doesn't mean the other ceases to be the parent and loses all rights over the child.
