When Dante was born, the couple decided that Tony should  give up his job as a salesman to look after him as Alice’s income, as a doctor, was far higher than  his. Tony has not worked since then, but when Kevin a went to school he started studying for a  law degree at the local university and he hopes to eventually qualify as a solicitor.  In the past year the marriage has not been as happy as it once was. Tony spends all his spare time  studying and Alice has been spending a lot of time with Jennifer, a nurse who works with her.  Alice has just admitted to Tony that they are having an affair and she wants to set up home with  her. She wants the children to go and live with them in Jennifer’s house which is in a town 20  miles away. She wants to sell the family home so that she and Jennifer can buy a larger property.  Tony and Alice’s family home is currently valued at $300,000 and is subject to a mortgage of  $65,000. It is in joint names. Alice’s current income is $80,000 per year.  Tony wants the children to stay with him and asks your advice about the following matters:  On what grounds can he end the marriage?  What will the court take into account in deciding  with whom the children should live? (You should assume that you are a paralegal working for a  private California family law practitioner who has asked you for feedback prior to meeting with  Tony)
