Dear Brother / Sister,
A woman can divorce from her husband if she is unjustly treated. She can even get the right of her mahr (portion paid by the groom to the bride for marriage) payment in the event of divorcement.
Who has to take after the children in the case of spouses getting divorced?
Taking care of the children is the responsibility of the mother and affording the expenses is the responsibility of the father.
For those three kinds of expenses, the father pays an amount that the experts approve for the mother. He can visit his child when s/he is with mother. There is no obligation for taking the child to him.
