Wife sleeping around


#1

Adultery is a sexual relationship with someone of the opposite sex that occurs while you are legally married to someone else. It is a crime in this state and you can also sue the third party for Criminal Conversation and seek to recover monetary damages from the third party.

Adultery generally does not affect custody.

Greetings,

I’ve heard this so much on this site (which is great by the way) I am in a similar situation. Just recently I had a consultation with an attorney and he told me his retainer fee and that as soon as it’s paid he’ll get all the ball rolling. As far as the criminal conversation suit will this be something thats dragged out or will I be able to get it done with the divorce when we file. I’ve been sepaated for 10 months now and she’s no cohabiltating with the 3rd party in front of our kids (10;3) what am I to do!! What’s sad is it seems like when the shoe is on the other foot and its the man that’s the victim no one wants to take you serious. Like I said I have evidence to bring my STBX life to a halt and can’t do anything with it cause she’s manipulated everyone to believe her case and her action for what she’s doing. What do I do? Only go to court so they can order me with Child Support (which I pay now voluntarily meaning no court order), no separation agreement (only two verbal agreement with visitation and support), She moved out of the martial residence stating she couldn’t afford it and moved into a house in which is exactly the same amount as the marital residence. I refuse to settle for her to make a clean get away.

Litigation is an expensive and time consuming process. It is unlikely that the litigation will be completed prior to your divorce.
