    he would have lost all his reputation and prestige in front of his kids and friends.

    If it had been proved in the court that Mike had stolen the jewelery, he would have lost all his reputation and prestige in front of his kids and friends.

    Please check my sentences.

    Could you please tell me whether "in front of his kids" is correct or not?

    "If it was proven in the court that Mike had stolen the jewelery, he would have lost all his reputation and prestige in front of his children and friends."

    It's basically correct, but I'd write it as above. "Kids" usually sounds too informal to me in a statement like that.

    I looked that up to check. It seems that in Aus, it's spelled about three or four ways, so I left it!
