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, the experienced divorce lawyers at The Manely Firm, P.C., can help.
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 infidelity 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
- Distribution of significant finances or properties
- Spousal support decisions
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 divorce attorney is critical to your best interests.
