It is not legal for your husband to take your son without your permission. As a parent, you have the legal right to make decisions regarding your child's custody, care, and control. If your husband takes your son without your consent, it could be considered parental kidnapping, which is a crime.
If you divorce your husband, he may be required to provide child support and possibly spousal support, depending on the circumstances of your marriage and the divorce. The amount and duration of these support obligations will be determined by the court based on various factors, such as your respective incomes and the needs of your child.
If your husband obtained his green card through marriage to you and you divorce him within the first two years of marriage, he may be at risk of losing his green card. This is because his green card is conditional for the first two years, and he must demonstrate that the marriage was entered into in good faith and not for immigration purposes. If you divorce him during this time, he may have to provide evidence to show that the marriage was genuine and that the relationship broke down despite good intentions.
If you are concerned about your husband's threats to take your son and leave the country, you may want to consult with an experienced family law attorney who can advise you on your legal rights and options. An attorney can help you explore your options for obtaining a custody order or restraining order to protect your son and your rights as a parent.
