I think they will still look at what is best for the children…despite how your wife treated you. I know that my husband was in this position w/ his ex and made the decision to let her have custody because it was best for his young children to be w/ their mother and his lawyer told him it would be a difficult case to win.


The reason I ask this is based upon one of Rosen’s reply’s to another question on here. He stated that adultry does bear weight in a custody battle. I just seek more clairification.


All issues affecting the welfare of children can be brought into evidence in a child custody trial. How much weight a court will place on adultery by one parent is entirely up to the individual judge hearing that case, although generally there needs to be some connection between the children and the other relationship.

So if my wife broke up the marriage for another man, that would carry a lot of weight in my favor in regards to the custody of the children??? I am currently pursuing the custody of my two children. I don’t have any pics or anything for proof, but she couldn’t deny it if she tried. Hell, my children met the man before I found out about it…even before we were separated. Any word on this topic?
