Will fault factor into the divorce settlement?
Though the state of Florida does not require fault for a couple to seek a divorce, fault may actually factor heavily into a divorce settlement. If fault can be established, it may affect the court’s decisions regarding child custody, alimony, and the division of assets. Individuals who have been adulterous or abusive in their marriages may face unfavorable settlements, as courts may find that their spouses are entitled to more.
