  • can you get a phone conference with lawyer at no or less cost for you to feel better? I'm not divorced I'm wobbling on the brink of filing. I know from friends that it takes for eeeeeeeever to go through. i know there are divorce and also separation groups here on cm in groups. if your lawyer has associates can you another lawyer's opinion?

  • If your worried about getting custody, I wouldnt, unless you did something really bad on record. When I was fighting for my son my attourney told me that the only way that my ex would get custody is if I walked into the courtroom with a needle sticking out of my arm.

  • I don't know what to tell you because I don't think we are getting the full story. Adultery is not grounds for taking a mother's children away. Now if she was being a slut that would be different.
    I would get another attorney, one who isn't so negative about your chances. Also, I do think you need to look at your own behavior and see what is going on with you that makes your present attorney doubt your ability to get custody.
