I realise this may seem naive but having discovered my wife has been having an affair over a prolonged period of time would like to know if this and the reason for my divorce application will have any impact on the courts likely division of assets
In adultery normally to the applicant though in my case if the respondent turns up in court and threatens bankruptcy 50:50.
As to financial settlement. Starting point 50:50 in a medium to long term marriage then amounts go up in favour of the partner with the children - up to about 85:15. But can go back down to 50:50 on the threat of bankruptcy due to the Haynes(?) case currently going through court.
Hello i have been advised that the reason for the divorce has no bearing on the final division of assets if you cant both agrea the court will always make provision in favour for the parent who keeps the kids
