Hello and welcome,
The facts you set forth would typically weigh on the issue of custody since it shows a disregard by your ex for the well-being and best interests of the children.
However, her promiscuity itself may not be enough to succeed on an alienation of affection claim against her lovers or ex-lovers.
The tort of alienation of affections seeks damages against a third party who "alienates" the affections of one spouse from the other spouse. The lawsuit is usually brought by the innocent spouse against the guilty spouse's lover. An alienation of affections lawsuit, however, can be brought against any third party. For example, one spouse's in-law who advised the other spouse to leave his or her marriage can find themself held liable in an alienation of affections lawsuit.
So unless her lover or lovers were actively attempting to lure her from the marriage, there may not be sufficient evidence to succeed on such a claim. A court/jury may see simply that she was promiscuous and it was her conduct,, not someone else's that led to the demise of the marriage.
Here is a link that discusses this tort claim, that is recognized under NC law:
I doubt that your attorney does not wish to pursue the claims because it is more work, but that he has judged you may not succeed on the claims. It would be wise to obtain a second opinion though, based on all the facts.
The state and local bar associations can provide you with attorney referrals to consult with further.
