That's a complicated discussion - one you need to have with a local divorce lawyer.
I suggest that you consult with an attorney in your area. There are lots of issues here which cannot be properly explained in this forum.
There are numerous issues to be discussed, such as custody, visitation, child support, spousal maintenance, the status of the house following the divorce, etc. Also, depending on your respective financial circumstances, you may be entitled to have your husband pay a portion of your legal fees. You should consult with an attorney right away to find out your rights.
First, you should be aware that your husband's infidelity has no bearing on your case. Second, if he earns significantly more than you, you may entitled to spousal support, as well as have him pay your lawyer's fees. Lastly, you are likely entitled to a portion of the marital assets, such as the house and cars. There are also issues regarding child custody and support which should be discussed with a lawyer.
