Divorcing a Swiss lawyer. HELP!

We were married in 2015, I joined him here in 2016. Got pregnant in 2017 and our daughter will soon turn 6 months old.

Our marriage is clearly ending on bad terms: lack of respect and trust issues + physical violence on both sides + mother in law's intervention. I want to end my marriage officially but I foresee divorcing a lawyer can be tricky especially since I come from Asia, my French is not on reasoning level and I am not familiar with the system. So I am seeking for advices not to be outsmarted by my soon to be ex-husband.

My husband makes more than 200k per year whilst I am jobless here. I plan to return to my country following the divorce. My questions are:

1. My husband insists that I file for divorce in my home country, not here. My unstable suspicious bitter mind is wondering why? Any idea?
2. If I refuse to grant him such pleasure, meaning to file it in CH, should I stay here until the divorce is finalized?
3. Can I claim for alimony? How much roughly? Our marriage is more than 2 years.
4. I am a permit B holder. Am I entitled for any kind of free/minimum cost of legal service or assistance?
5. Most importantly, is custody to the mother guaranteed? I can't proceed with divorce after losing everything in my home country in order to be with this man only to return 2 years later with nothing but stretch marks on my belly to remind me of this painful life chapter.

Following the marriage, I shut down my company and revoked my license (to avoid income tax issues etc). Just wondering if I can claim compensation for losing my source of income and having to start over again? Although I am guessing there is a thin chance here.

What if I can prove the cause of divorce is infidelity? Any chance I will be compensated for my loss?

I appreciate any kind of help I could get. Thank you in advance.
