I have been (legally) married for over 30 years,

I have been (legally) married for over 30 years, (physically) separated for about 2 1/2. I am in the process of trying to get a divorce. I have recently heard from several old friends that mty soon to be exwife has confessed to them on multiple occasions that our oldest son, now 25, is not mine. I am obviously hurt, but I don't know whether I should even mention this, unless she tries to be difficult during the divorce. I.E, She has been pumping my younger kids, both teenagers, who have lived fulltime with me since she left, for information about who/whether I'm dating anyone, etc.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: New Mexico.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No. I'm trying to do this pro se, as finances are an issue.

I know, I know...That's just who I am.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That probably does it.
