Question #54: My husband and I have been married for a year and a half. Two months ago I found out that he has been unfaithful throughout the entirety of our marriage, and this relationship has even existed while we were engaged. To complicate things even further, I am five months pregnant with our first child. Please advise as to what legal actions I must take to get the ball rolling on a divorce.

Since you are going to have a child you owe it to the child to see if there is some way to save the marriage, perhaps trying marriage counselling. If you have tried this or do not believe it is possible to save the marriage, you should mediate the divorce with an attorney-mediator experienced in matrimonial matters who can assist you in preparing a separation agreement and divorce. The first step in the process is to discuss the divorce with your husband and see if he is agreeable to mediation. If you are located in the New York City metropolitan area, please call me at 212-370-1660 to discuss further.
