Adultery Case Result in New York

Adultery Lawyer in New York

Adultery and extramarital relationships is an issue that I have frequently encountered in divorce filings. Adultery is considered a crime in New York and can have a huge impact on your division of assets in New York Divorce court. I have represented spouses on "both sides of the fence" on this issue, having both pursued and defended against such claims. Here's a case example in which I helped the wife expose her husband's extramarital relationship and recover marital funds that the husband spent on his extramarital relationship.

Experienced New York Divorce Attorney

My client (the wife) was convinced that her husband of 20+ years was having an affair, as he routinely told her that he had to work late. After conducting a detailed review of the husband's credit card statements, I completed a deposition of the husband. At the deposition, I was able to elicit testimony from the husband whereby he not only admitted to having a girlfriend, but he also admitted to spending considerable sums of money on his girlfriend over an extended period of time.

As a result, my client received a greater share of the existing marital assets as part of the divorce. The client had this to say about my representation:

"Keith made my husband pay up!"

A cheating spouse can have a huge financial impact on the division of marital assets in divorce court. If you are seeking a divorce for adultery it is very important to prepare early so you can obtain or protect, as the case may be, as much money as possible in a divorce case.
