The affair with your best friend may affect the court’s decision regarding child custody, but it should not affect either the amount of child support or spousal support that you’ll have to provide to your wife upon divorce.
Concerning child visitation, unless there is some other reason such as physical abuse or socially unacceptable behavior, the court will not permit your wife to refuse to allow you visitation with your child.
If you’re living in the New York City metropolitan area, I strongly suggest you call me at 212-370-1660 to arrange for an appointment. It will be less costly, less emotionally traumatic, and faster than a litigated divorce.
