Greetings. Yes, the PI will help you with your alimony claim if you find evidence of adultery. If I were you, I would file in NC as our laws are very helpful to you. After you file, if you choose to move, then you at least know that the laws will not change since you will be under the jurisdiction of NC. It is important to note that if you move prior to a resolution, your spouse may try to petition for a change of venue to move this to another state, etc. Therefore, I would remain in NC until you both come to a mutual agreement.
No, the impact on custody of you having a job is slight in my opinion. You do have leverage, even though you have no income. Best of luck…and let us know if we can help.
