Question #83: My husband and I have been together for 9 years and got married this past Feb 03 . In April he had an affair that lasted till Sept. I caught him by getting a copy of cell phone bills since Jan before we married. If I was to file for divorce can these copies of the bills hold up in court? and is adultery illegal in NYC?

If the bills are copies of the originals and are unaltered I see no reason why they cannot be submitted to the court in support of your claim for adultery. Adultery is still illegal in the state of New York and is one of the grounds upon which a divorce will be granted.

If you’re living in the New York City metropolitan area I suggest you call me at 212-370-1660 to discuss mediating your divorce which will save your time, money, and lots of aggravation.
