What is Financial Adultery?

Financial adultery, also known as economic infidelity, is a form of financial misconduct that can occur during a marriage. In Florida, financial adultery can be grounds for divorce and can have significant consequences in the divorce process, including the distribution of assets.

Financial adultery can take many forms, including:

  1. Hiding assets: Concealing income, debts, or assets from your spouse in order to gain an advantage in the divorce process.
  2. Misusing marital funds: Using marital funds for personal expenses without your spouse's knowledge or consent.
  3. Making unauthorized financial decisions: Making significant financial decisions (e.g. selling property, investing in a business) without the knowledge or consent of your spouse.

If you suspect that your spouse is engaging in financial adultery, it's important to seek legal counsel as soon as possible. An experienced divorce attorney can help you gather evidence and build a strong case to protect your rights and interests.

It's also important to remember that financial adultery is not limited to divorce cases. Even if you are not currently considering divorce, it's important to be open and transparent with your spouse about your financial situation in order to maintain trust and build a strong foundation for your relationship.
