Definitely make sure that your lawyer is able to protect you, your assets and is a strong advocate of you having as much custody as possible.
Good luck, friend. Sounds like you're on the right course.
Thanks for the kind word, and I'm definitely feeling good about the lawyer.
What were the logistics of the affair? When did she have the time?
My guess is while I was away at work and my older was at school. There's a few friends she could have left the younger with while she got her tune-up, but I'm not planning to ask around because I don't really need to seek contention with everyone who might have known. I'm pretty sure she had him over a few times and it must have been while I was visiting my folks with the kids. She begged off a few of those visits saying she was feeling poorly due to getting her monthlies early. How's that excuse grab you?
What conflict of yours do you want the court to hear?
Do you mind sharing what state you are in? It can make a big difference.
The conflict over who gets how much of what, etc.
I doubt I'll be suing Young Dr. Kildare, but if the wife makes things really hot, it might be an option. My attorney said that would only be last resort territory though.
We're all having our soap opera here in North Carolina, in-laws participating via telephone currently, but I assume they'll be coming to bless us with their presence soon. Having a little something extra to go with your marital does mean something around here, I've heard. Hence my confusion about your comments. But my attorney set me straight, he said we North Carolinians are still keeping the no-fault barbarians at the gate.
Damn that made me spit up my water
I speak from knowledge. I know a guy at work, his wife gets the call of the wild last year, takes up with some motorcycle freaks and next thing you know they've ransacked his house and fenced everything across the next three counties. Needless to say there was no reconciliation, though she really didn't look too much the worse for wear when she finally came back around. No tattoos, at least none any of us could see. Good thing they hadn't any kids.
