A. Dear Sir,
It is a rule that custody of minor children will go to the wife.
You can mention this in the petition separately if you want, otherwise also it is not an issue.

A. Dear Umesh, According to The Guardianship Act mother gets the physical custody of the child who is below 5 years of age and the father can have the visitation rights. So, if they have applied for divorce suit then there is no need for any other documents. Just add this in that petition. if they haven't then prepare a petition and file it before your Family Court or District Court with the help of an advocate.
