Infidelity impact on Divorce settlement
In Australia, the law has a no-fault divorce system under the Family Law Act, that means that both parties don’t need to prove any other party at fault in order to file for a divorce. When deciding how the assets should be divided, the Court is unlikely to take fault into account. In few cases, where the party is subjected to domestic violence, it can have an effect on the divisions of the assets if it makes one party’s contributions notably more difficult than they should be or if it affects a party’s future possibilities.
