Effect of Adultery and Infidelity on a Divorce in Arizona

You may be asking about the effect of adultery 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.

There are also severe civil and criminal repercussions to an adulterous spouse, which we cover more fully on another page of our website. You may wish to view our Arizona Laws Regarding Adultery page to learn more about those civil and criminal penalties, as well as to obtain more information on a waste claim related to adultery in an Arizona divorce case.
