How do I stay in the United States after a divorce?

I am from Lebanon and have been here in the United States with my husband, raising our two sons. I don’t work because my husband would not allow it and wanted me to stay home with the boys. My husband is saying that once he gets the divorce he is going to send me back to Lebanon where divorced women have almost no rights. I have lived in the U.S. for over 10 years. I need to know my rights in a divorce and what rights do I have to custody of my sons. My husband works all the time and travels, there is no way he could care for our boys if I was not in the home. Can my husband force me to go back to Lebanon if we divorce, and what do I need to do to keep custody of my boys?

Can I get 50/50 custody and have my child support decreased?

My son is 15 years old and he’s been in his mother’s primary custody since we split up. However, he goes back and forth between my house and his mother’s. He spends overnights with me, eat meals at my house, and I buy him whatever he needs for school and sports. His mother is now taking me back for more child support because she heard I got a promotion at work. The new position does not pay me substantially more money, I just get more vacation and other perks. Can I counter-sue her for 50/50 custody and have my support lessened? This makes sense since my son is with me a lot anyway and I pay out of pocket for many of his things. If I do take her back to court for custody, will my son have any say in where he wants to live because he’s 15?
