Infidelity & Divorce in Georgia
Atlanta Divorce Lawyers Helping Families Rebuild After Infidelity
In Georgia, if one or another spouse was unfaithful during the marriage,
you may wish to file for
divorce as retribution. The nature of adultery can make it difficult to prove
on the basis of grounds for divorce. Adultery is often the cause of many
marriage breakups, although it can be difficult when one spouse or another
denies involvement, hides any evidence, or there simply is not enough
evidence to support the claims.
If infidelity is the reason behind the end of your relationship with your
spouse, and you wish to pursue divorce, please be sure to
contact our Georgia divorce lawyers at
The Manely Firm, P.C.
How Does Infidelity Affect the Outcome?
You can file for a no-fault divorce or a fault-based divorce. There are
13 types of grounds-based divorces, one of which is infidelity. The legal
definition of divorce in our state is defined as the following: one spouse
engages in sexual intercourse, heterosexual or homosexual, with someone
other than the spouse.
Adultery affects the outcome of divorce for the following matters:
- Child support payments
- Child custody decisions
- Spousal support decisions
- Distribution of finances or properties
Remember, however, that one spouse or another can deny their wrongdoings.
Furthermore, once you serve papers on your spouse, you will also need
to serve the other person involved in the affairs. If you win your case,
however, the courts can deny or offer you the advantage when it comes
to deciding on these matters. As there are so many legal processes involved,
having a Atlanta divorce attorney is critical to your best interests.
