I'm considering divorce

bear in mind whatever decision you reach the welfare of your child will be a priority. Is the child going to be better off with his mother if you divorce, as-- barring any abuse-- it is most likely she will be given custody.

That's a good point. A child who is left with an unstable parent will probably feel abandoned by the parent who left. As other posters have said, it sounds like there is a lot going on that makes this situation complex. Doing things like screaming in front of your young child and changing locks seems like pretty unstable behavior, but it would not necessarily change the opinion that she get custody, which might not be good. You probably need legal advice if you are thinking about separation. I'm sorry for all of your difficulties.
