Is my spouse going to be “punished” for indiscretion during the divorce process?
Divorce is not designed to be a legal “punishment” for a spouse, even if that spouse has committed an indiscretion during marriage. By law, divorce involves equal distribution of property, assets, and debts, in addition to agreements regarding children and alimony payments. As such, a divorce will not punish a spouse for being unfaithful to you. However, you may be able to use your position to negotiate a better divorce settlement for you.
With the help of an attorney, your divorce settlement can be made more beneficial for you. To learn more about getting the terms that you want during divorce, contact the qualified Lewisville divorce lawyers of Alexander & Associates today at (972) 420-6560.
