Child's mother was a hamster

Is there any legal (or otherwise) recourse if one parent is falsifying their child's background with a psychologist to make the other parent look like a villain? Could it really be causing them to misdiagnose my son? Sorry for the dreadful complicated story inside...I really tried to short-story it. [more inside]

IANAL Divorcefilter (please hope me)

My marriage of ~10yrs is on the ropes. My wife is suing for divorce, and (among other less important things) wants full custody of our beautiful youngsters (ages >4 and <10). There's more inside, but here are my specific questions: 1) I have reason to believe she is having an affair. Does her alleged adultery, if proven, give me any leverage with regards to custody? 2) What other ethical ways are there to ensure I at least get joint physical and legal custodianship? [more inside]

Is there anything I can do to keep my soon to be ex wife from leaving town?

The wife and I are probably breaking up. We've been together for a few years for the benefit of one kid, and another one is due this month. The problem - her family is on one coast, mine is on another. We are near mine. I'm concerned that she might just pack up and take our kids.

Is there anything I can do to keep her from leaving town? We've just bought a house, and I have no job prospects if I have to follow her to be with my kids. She hasn't worked in years, and we're here primarily to make a good living. If she leaves, I feel she will find a way to use this against me.
