Divorce - Conflict of Interests.


February 6, 1980


It would not be ethically permissible for an attorney to continue

representing the ex-husband of wife in child custody proceedings where he

acted as attorney for wife's current husband in matters relating to

marital problems which could aid the ex-husband in his child custody

proceedings, unless attorney obtains the express consent of wife's current

husband. [See II: DR:5-105(D).]
