Q: My wife cheated on me twice with the same person. I want a divorce but not sure what the out come would be.
We have 2 children ages 5 and 13 I don't want to lose them
A: In any divorce where child custody is an issue, the behavior of the adults is an important factor in who has primary custody over the children. The question you must ask yourself is, is a divorce something you really want? Is your wife willing to work on your marriage and stop cheating? It sounds like you have already thought about it and are staying in the marriage, right now, for the children; is that is what is best for them? Do the children see you unhappy or fighting? Children deserve to be raised in a loving environment that shows them what a healthy relationship looks like; is that what they are getting?
There is no way to predict the future and every case is different. It is vital that, if you are sure about going forward with a divorce, you speak to an attorney and start taking steps to protect yourself.
A: Hello. You need to seek local counsel to address your concerns, your specific facts, and potential options. You're children are worth good legal counsel. Best of luck!
