1) if wife wants divorce agree for divorce by mutual consent 

2) insist on joint custody of your son 

3) issues regarding return of stridhan , maintenance, alimony etc  have to be incorporated in the consent terms

1) you will not get sole custody of the child 

2) merely because they have no income source is not sufficient to deny them custody 

3) seek joint custody of the child

If you want only the custody of your son then you can file a petition for child custody in the court which will be decided on the touchstone of child welfare. You can get his absolute custody if you can prove that you are in a better position than child's mother to secure the welfare of child.

You cannot force her to live with you against her wishes. If you do not want to give divorce to her, you may contest her divorce petition to the core and try to get it dismissed.  You can ask for your child's custody by filing a child custody case and get your child into your custody.
This way you can put pressure on your wife to save your marriage.

i can take my son back it is possible?

Yes, you can file a child custody case and seek custody of your child.



they have no source of income. Only her nanni getting a pension after death of his husband, her nanni & mother both takes divorce from his husbands.

This will be a good and strong ground for you to seek the child custody and can stake the claim on the basis of economic and moral background in which the child may get its life spoiled if it remains under her custody.
