Does Adultery Have An Effect on an Arizona Divorce?


Adultery can affect a divorce in Arizona. Each spouse owes a duty to manage the community finances in a way that benefits the community. Community money spent on an adulterous relationship is a waste of community assets. The innocent spouse can make a claim to be reimbursed for that waste in the divorce.
