Question:

My wife is having an affair with an illegal immigrant. It is possible that this is the second one she had (with an illegal). She claims that since her relationship is discrete, the court will not consider them. I argue that it is only a matter of time before the children and neighbors, etc. find out what I know. Can I use this situation to influence custody and/or ownership of the house?

Answer:

Allow me to preface my answer to your question with the disclaimer that I am not licensed to practice law in the state of New Jersey. In general in my jurisdiction, Courts consider affairs (misconduct) as it relates to custody if there is any improper conduct in front of the children or if her affairs have caused her to shirk her duties with respect to the children. With regard to property, the court can consider it in the overall division of property. Some courts give it a lot of weight while others do not.

Question:

I had an affair which resulted in a pregnancy. I want to know what the chances of me obtaining custody are in the state of Maine. She is an atrocious housekeeper who I have been tempted to call DHHS on multiple time due to the mess. She has also gone to work at nite and left her other kids (10, 8) at home by themselves for the evening. She spends all her free time in bed sleeping such that her other kids complain about it. Their diet is predominantly fast food. I have serious concerns about a child of mine being raised in this environment. Any suggestions?

Answer:

Allow me to preface my answer to your question with the disclaimer that I am not licensed to practice law in the state of Maine. It come down to what is in the best interests in your child. The care of the children is very important. That is one of the factors that the court will look at. Also how much time have you been spending with the child? Also have you been involved in the decision making? That is also key.
