Infidelity in Divorce Supportive Counsel You Can Rely On

Can Infidelity Affect a Fort Walton Beach Divorce?

Our Fort Walton Beach Divorce Lawyers are Here to Answer Your Questions – (800) 822-5170

When it comes to divorce, there are many questions that our client may have. One question we often encounter is whether or not infidelity can make a difference in your divorce. Florida is a “no-fault” divorce state, which simply means that you aren’t required to provide a reason for your divorce. You only need to demonstrate that your marriage has broken down beyond the point of reasonable repair. However, simply because you don’t need to list infidelity as a reason for your divorce does not mean that it can’t affect the outcome of your divorce proceedings.

At The Virga Law Firm, P.A., we’re familiar with the difficulties our clients may be facing. We have represented hundreds of cases involving unique hardships, such as adultery. Don’t hesitate to reach out and speak with our Fort Walton Beach divorce attorneys. We are here for you.

Will Infidelity Affect My Divorce?

In Florida, it is not necessary to publicly disclose your reasons for divorce in court. This can help relieve some of the pressure you may feel at the thought of leaving your marriage’s “dirty laundry” out in public. While infidelity doesn’t need to be included in your divorce, you should know that disclosure can affect how the judge handles your case. If you are the wronged spouse, you may be able to leverage your spouse’s cheating against them for your own benefit.

It’s possible that unfaithful spouses will receive unfavorable rulings on:

In Florida, the law decrees that property must be divided equitably, not equally. This means that the judge will carefully evaluate your property and any other relevant factors, and divide the property accordingly. This also means that it’s possible for a judge to punish an unfaithful spouse with a less favorable divorce outcome. If you were the spouse who committed infidelity, you may find yourself facing less favorable child custody arrangements, gaining a lesser share of the community property, and even paying greater amounts of spousal and child support.
