Q: I have proof my wife is cheating I continue to pay everything he has threatened me can I prevent him from seeing my kid

My wife and I have been separated for 2 years, throughout these two years I have never disregarded my responsibilities, I have paid for everything and some, she has access to all accounts. She has been communicating with a former old friend and has developed a relationship physically and mentally (I have proof) she denies all of it and states to me she deserves half of everything. The man she is dating I knew, he has threatened me and disclosed some private information about him and my wife... things have gotten worse he has moved to our town and follows my wife everywhere. Recently my wife beat me then turned the whole situation around and called the authorities on me stating I beat her when all I did was push her to get away she tore my shirt and beat my head. I have a lot to loose I have a company and two houses I want what’s best for my daughters but, at the same time I don’t want her to walk away with everything when I’m trying to make it work.

A: What you need to do is get an aggressive attorney to defend you in a divorce. Adultery is one of the factors that a court will consider in potentially giving you a disproportionate share of the community estate. Apparently she has become violent with you so that is definitely a factor that a court will evaluate regarding custody of the children.
