Unprotected sex


Dear chemicalrxn:

Greetings. No, the judge will not review your husband’s fault for equitable distribution, unless you have receipts showing the money he spent on prostitutes.

As far as alimony, yes, the judge would consider this behavior for determing the amount and duration of alimony. Thank you.

The response posted above is based upon the limited factual information made available and is not intended as a full and complete response to the question. The only reliable manner to obtain complete and adequate legal advice is to consult with an attorney, fully explain your situation, and allow the attorney sufficient opportunity to research the applicable law and facts required to render an accurate opinion.

My spouse admitted to unprotected sex with “women for hire”. I also have proof. I am trying to settle out of court, but it seems as though my lawyer does not want to use this as a barganing tool as of yet. I have had to be tested for STDs and have endured tremendous emotional tramua. How do you think a Judge would view this in regards to division of assets and alimony?
