Dear Admin,

Thank you for your prompt reply.

I need more clarification.

I am going from one western country to another on immigration, atleast expect to.

I came to this western country legally on work permit and we both have a permanent residence and hold Indian citizenship.

I and my son are having our interview at consulate in next 3 weeks. Is there a fast way of doing something so i am able to prove to the counsellor i have legal custody of my son? Will a supporting letter from a lawyer help me? The divorce petition does say we have been abandonned and the whereabouts of my ex is not known.

I was given to understanding the term “sole custody” does not exist in Indian law is this true?

Thank you again for your time and replies.
