"For Lucy" Thank you for the great feedback. A couple of points of clarification: My attorney is telling me to prove adultry in the state of Va. you need two things - intent/opportunity plus Public Display of Affection (PDA). I only have the first and not PDA. Is this accurate? I have them in a hotel room where she is video taped leaving her room at 8:30am and the boyfriend is seen peering around the door with just his head. He takes a shower and leaves 30 minutes later. We have video of him going to his car. Also, my wife's phone records which shows 19 calls between them over the two days they were seen together. Some for over 2 hours. Is this worthy evidence in Virginia? I heard some states yes others not as much on the phone records.
Does Manifest Injustice reflect the belief that I emotionally abused her during our marriage. Her friends came into court and testified that I gave her the silent treatment at times for days at a time during our marriage which thereby negatively impacted our relationship and lead to the breakup.
If you could anwers these two questions that would be great.
