Divorce and Affairs

Divorce When Spouse Had An Affair

Extramarital Affair - The first word that comes to mind is devastation. There is no way around it, when you confirm that your spouse was unfaithful you are either shocked or your intuition is confirmed. Emotions heighten and you see your world turned around perhaps with no positive end in sight.

Very little compares to the discoverance of a spouse who committed adultery. You can evaulate the level of betrayal in an effort to minimize the trauma, as many often do. For instance, was it a one night stand? Or a long term affair with a co-worker. Those which take the highest emotional toll are affairs with friends of the victim or worse - affairs with the victim 's family member. This actually does happen - hard to fathom but it does rarely occur.

Any way you look at it, divorce due to an affair can be an emotional rollercoaster. Emotions will include rage, hurt, and sometimes guilt. The best advice is to obtain professional therapy to help the emotional pain involved. It can aid in getting your thoughts cleared to make strong minded decisions necessary in the divorce process. If there are children involved, they may gain from therapy as well.

While your skilled divorce attorney can guide you in the divorce, you make the ultimate decisions relating to finances and custody matters prior to litigation. An infideility crisis can be overcome. It takes time, therapy and an attorney to advocate for you.
