Adultery and Filing For Divorce
Re: Adultery and Filing For Divorce barelybreathing: As a paralegal myself, every state is different. You will NOT be hateful or vengeful to do and request what is on the legal books for your rights. As to the question of whether to go down the adultery road, again go meet with an attorney for an initial consultation, but it could very well take longer in the legal process if you allege adultery if you have to prove the affair in court. Also costly. But you could recoop attorney's fees possibly if you do prove it, depending on what state you are in of course. The most important thing for you is to decide is if it is that important for you to "drag" the legal process out or dump the SOB and get on with your life for happier times. His affair is his demons, not yours. He will reap what he sows. But if you are hurting financially because he bailed on the marriage, by all means go and get what is rightfully entitled to you under the law. Again, I am not an attorney, you need to see one to understand the full scope of your legal actions. Many attorneys will not charge you a consultation fee, so call around and there are many legal services out there that will help assist you if money is an issue.....Good luck, and remember, getting away from the ugliness is the most important thing.....

I work in the legal field too. :) Wish I knew more about family law though.
