If my husband has been seeing someone and bringing my kids around them and lying about it can it affect custody?

Yes adultery can impact a divorce and so can any intimate relations with the spouse (which I think you suggested with the 'hot summer night' sleep over) which can have the effect of resetting the clock on divorce requirements (depends on the state). Get with an OR family law attorney ASAP. There will be many he-said/she-said issues during the divorce and you will not be able to control all the actions of the other spouse.
