In most cases, a spouse’s adultery doesn’t factor heavily in custody considerations in divorces in Queens.
If your spouse was particularly outrageous in their behavior during the affair and neglected the children in order to go on dates, or exposed them to inappropriate or dangerous people in the course of the infidelity, then there is likely an argument to be made that your spouse is unfit to be a custodial parent.
Judges don’t want to use kids and custody as a tool for one spouse to punish another, so arguments related to custody must be carefully considered and thoughtfully drafted.
Custody fights can get emotional fast, and you should work with attorneys who understand the details of the law and the temperament of the courts.
