How Does Adultery Affect My Divorce?

Adultery is less of a factor in divorce awards than it once was, but there are still elements that can cause you a headache if you’ve committed adultery.

For instance, if marital resources went to provide expensive gifts, housing, or other support to a lover, the courts will make an effort to see that you’re on the hook for reimbursing the marriage for those costs.

On the other hand, if you’re divorcing a spouse who cheated during the course of your marriage, today’s courts are less likely to react punitively to your spouse’s indiscretions, which means that adultery doesn’t have a big impact on the final settlement.
