How does a decent promotion at work translate into $10/hr? What is your wife's income?

However, I don't see you having that luxury. My math says that after you're done paying legal fees to enforce some child's choice, you will be more than broke. Hence my question - you're the parent, therapy is not the answer to everything, your child needs to have a meaningful relationship with both parents - your biggest job right now, to preserve your wealth, is to rein in your recalcitrant child.
What sort of parenting plan would you offer - how often will the child see the mother?
Divide all the assets and the debt by two. My back of the napkin calculations says you're broke - $30k in assets, $20k in debt and half a car. That $10k left over will pay $5k in legal fees for a civil divorce with custody. You've got $5k for your down payment. Oh, then there's alimony and child support.
Looks like you're selling the home to me. What am I missing?
