Although many states still have adultery statutes on the books, it's extremely unlikely that anyone would prosecute after the holding in Lawrence v. Texas, back in 2003, which overturned another statute that criminalized private consensual sexual behavior between adults. I've never heard of a prosecutor bringing one of these cases, because they just aren't all that interested in regulating that sort of private behavior.
A spouse who causes the break-up of a marriage through adultery usually is not entitled to alimony, especially not if she's already living with a new partner.

You can ask the judge to order her to refinance the auto loan in your name, or you could request that he give you the right to repossess the car if she doesn't make the payments.
It is possible to request a new date, however, with the hearing tomorrow, there's a good chance the judge will decline it. That's especially true if you've already reached an agreement on everything. Be prepared to proceed with the hearing if you walk in, ask for a continuance, and he says no.
