Am I being taken advantage of financially, and am I making the right decisions?

I have been separated from my wife of 5 years for 4 months now. My wife changed the locks on our house and made me leave(Is that legal?). I have wanted to work things out and she doesnt so we are headed for divorce which is fine. We have a 3 year old son. With not wanting to fight with her, I had been requested to continue to pay the mortgage, and various other bills including child support. I have been forced to live with my parents, and pick up a PT job to be able to live. I have met someone, and my wife, who allows me to have my son overnight and see him when I am able to, refuses to let him meet her, which I agree would confuse him at this point. She also states that she will be having sole custody of him which i dont agree with. If i move in with my new GF, does that cause more problems for me, or do I need to get my own apt. With my new GF, my son wouldnt have his own room, which i know is important. I think the amount that i pay her every month is ridiculous, but have been paying to avoid fighting. She has drafted a separation agreement for finance and is being finalized by a lawyer. Should I refuse to sign until i have a lawyer review it to ensure it is fair for both of us? My wife has always worked, but hasnt for the last 6 months, and still doesnt have a job, so it feels like im being penalized for having a job. How do i ensure that what i am paying is fair and I am not being taken advantage of? How long do I have to pay the mortgage? Since the house is 50/50 when we get divorced, does she have to sell or do I have the option of signing all of my ownership over to her so I dont have to pay the mortgage anymore? I want my son to have the best life, and want to provide for him, but I dont see why she cant sell and move into an apt like me. Can she be forced to sell the house since it is to be 50/50? I am not confrontational, and do not want to impact my son anymore than necessary, but I just am worried i will be taken advantage of. Is it impossible for me to get joint custody if i dont have a place where he can have his own bedroom?
