Has your spouse been unfaithful? At The Virga Law Firm, P.A., we have helped many spouses who have been deeply wounded by infidelity. It is a heartbreaking experience that no one should ever have to face. Sadly, it happens far too often, as it is one of the largest reasons why couples divorce.
As with any other traumatic experience, healing is a slow process. When you come out on the other side and in control of the situation, it shows that you have power and that nothing will stop you from moving forward.
Does Infidelity Play a Role in the Divorce Process?
In Florida, you do not need to have grounds to file for divorce; you can file for divorce for any reason. That said, adultery does not need to be a point of contention in your court case. However, it can jeopardize the spouse’s chances of receiving what they wish in the settlement.
Adultery can affect matters such as:
- Asset division
- Property division
- Spousal support
- Child custody
- Child support
To that effect, you can pursue a no-fault divorce, and you will not be required to provide a reason for your petition. Keep in mind, however, that even if you can prove that your spouse was unfaithful in a fault-based case, it is up to the courts discretion on making any final decisions.
