1. The custody orders are variable. The guardian Court may change the custody in appropriate situation, if the Court so considers for welfare of the child.

2. You should not tell a lie. There is no need to make a false / wrong statement about your religion.

3. You should have your own lawyer who can represent you and watch your interest.

4. Even if you get sole custody at this stage, mother can still be granted visitation rights at any stage to best serve the welfare of the child.

It all depends upon the case.

Though your marriage is void hence you should follow your advocate. better to engage your lawyer also.
