FAQ: Will the court take into account my spouse’s unreasonable behaviour or adultery when we divorce?

The court will treat your spouse’s unreasonable behaviour or adultery as grounds for divorce. Unreasonable behaviour includes verbal or physical abuse, drug abuse or refusal to pay for housekeeping. In terms of financial outcomes, i.e. the splitting of assets or income, your spouse’s behaviour will not be taken into account unless it is of an extreme nature and too severe to ignore.
