Hello there:

In Wyoming, "no". It is not a crime and, since Wyoming is a no-fault divorce state, it is irrelevant as to why a marriage ends--it only needs to be shown that irreconcilable differences arose.

I hope that this helps you to understand the law in your situation. Let me know if I may be of further assistance. Thank you.

That doesn't change my answer. Child custody is ordered according to the best interest of the child; I don't know what happened in that specific situation and the mother walking out as she did was, I'm sure, a factor in the court's custody decision, but there is no such thing as "abandonment of a marriage" in Wyoming. The rest of the story is not true: you will not lose your right to any assets merely because you walk out on your family. You are welcome to listen to some ridiculous rumor from an ill-informed layman instead of the licensed attorney... be my guest! :)
