For the majority of couples facing divorce after one spouse’s infidelity, filing on the grounds of adultery will simply take longer, be more combative, and cost more money.
While it may be satisfying to imagine a judge admonishing your spouse for their misbehavior, the truth is that judges would much rather approach your divorce from a more removed position and aren’t interested in taking sides.
If your spouse cheated on you, it’s likely that you can make a case for certain considerations in the settlement, but on the whole, adultery doesn’t play a large role in a final settlement.
Filing on the grounds of Irretrievable Breakdown gives you the best chance to have a relatively quick, relatively clean break from a cheating spouse, while getting the resources you deserve at the end of the marriage.
