“I am getting a Dissolution of my marriage, but I have had a baby by another man while separated from my ex-husband. Do I have to let the court know about my baby with another man?”

Yes – because even if you don’t, your husband will, and then the Court will wonder why you didn’t.

In most states, however, a spouse’s moral conduct is not taken into account during divorce proceedings, except in a few states which still consider it for purposes of awarding property and spousal support (alimony).
