Hi I am one of those rarities, a male primary school teacher. And I am need of advice. I met and married my wife in Singapore, she is Peruvian. . Unfortunately, we are now looking at a divorce. I knew her family had emigrated to the States, but 3 months after we were married, she told me they were illegal immigrants, and whilst she was there she paid a guy to marry her so she could get her green card. They married, but she didn't get the green card so had to leave the US. We moved back to the UK in December 2008, with my wife pregnant. She contributed nothing financially to the marriage, I bought the house, and spent all my savings doing it up and buying her a car as she started work with our daughter 1 year old. She is in international sales. Obviously there are arguments, but I have never cheated or anything on her. I love my daughter, but my wife is now saying 'We're in England, women have rights here...the baby should be with me and I am entitled to the house.' (not a direct quote - but in a nutshell.) Personally, I think she is entitled to half of any appreciation in the value of the house, but more importantly, I want to be with my daughter. I initially thought we would split custody 50/50. Or do the courts give the woman custody?
