I live in San Diego. I'm an American citizen.
My Mexican girlfriend got pregnant and I initiated a K1 visa.
She is now in the US under K1 Visa.
We are now married.
We have a 6 month old son.
She is not happy here, for many reasons of her own. Life in the US is not what she imagined.
I am not happy with her because she is verbally abusive.
I tell her we should separate.
She would not leave.
She is waiting to get her papers.
I tell her that I am not convinced that I will continue with the K1 process because
I find her very offensive and she is not happy with me. There's no reason to continue together.
I am concerned that she might escalate the verbal abuse to physical abuse, and given our society, I will take the blame and the punishment simply because I am a man.
I have never hit her.
She does not want to leave. For obvious reasons, residency.
My main question is our child's custody. I love my son. I am a doctor who is also studying to be a lawyer.
I believe that I can give our son a more stable home and a better future.
She does not have any professional or marketable job skill. She never finished school.
Her family doesn't have any money. They are dependent on me.
What should I do?
What government agency can help me regarding child custody?
