Does Infidelity Affect The Court’s Decisions In A Divorce?
The court does take cheating into account when making decisions about alimony and dividing property. If the dependent spouse committed the adultery and it led to the divorce, the dependent spouse will typically not be granted alimony. It may also affect the distribution of assets, especially if there is a record of money spent on gifts, hotel rooms or other things.
Can The Mother Of A Child Born Out Of Wedlock Get Child Support?
In order to get court-ordered child support, the paternity of the father must be established by filing a paternity acknowledgement form. This can be done voluntarily by the father or may be done by the mother as well. If the father is unwilling to acknowledge paternity, the court can order a DNA test to prove parentage.
