Father's rights

Dear ontario:

Greetings. Since child support is the great “equalizer of incomes” in custody actions, it does not matter if you make less than your spouse. Pursue both child support and alimony. Do not stay in the same house with her without representation by an attorney, as you may be condoning her behavior by staying.

Never negotiate with your spouse directly without an attorney’s advice. You may end up agreeing to something that you should not. Best of luck.

I forgot to say that you can still gain custody of the children, despite a smaller income. Best of luck.

Wife has admitted to affair which started 3 weeks ago. Says she is in love with this guy. Does not want me to leave the house until January for the kids sake, at which time she wants to move in with him and my kids. I want custody of the kids and I want the house, my biggest fear is my income is lower than my wife’s and this guy’s which could deny me custody of the kids. Tell me I have a chance for my kids!! This guy is apparently not a US citizen.
