My concern would be, that you will work very hard to get back to your wife. Then she will say, then we need to get back together as a family.
Then you will go to bat for her, and tell the judge how wonderful she is, she needs to be back helping to raise the child as a family unit.
I've had double experience with that. My wife as the mother and "co-care taker" of our child, and my daughter in law as the mother and "caretaker" of her child (my grandchild).
Both were planned disasters. The now grown grandson (my daughter in laws son) has had nothing to do with his mother since he's been out on his own for 2 years).
I now have had nothing to do with my now 40-year-old son now going on 40 days and counting, because of the problems my wife and I had in our marriage, which mimicks your marriage.
Your daughter, 1,200 miles away, is in the best possible position she could be in, unless she was 1,500 miles away.
You don't understand how wonderful of a situation she is in. Your efforts to get back with your wife, which I predict, will be great for you and your wife, for about
15 minutes, but disastrous for your daughter. I predict. I've seen it happen twice in my life.
They can't destroy if they can't get around. That's where you come in. You've seen her mocking and emotionally abusing your child. Please take that into consideration.
