How does adultery impact your separation or divorce in ontario? Hi, I’m Brian Galbraith. I’m the owner of Galbraith Family Law Professional Corporation. We’re a law firm of divorce lawyers with offices in Barrie, Orillia, and Newmarket. Adultery has a huge impact on marriages. Usually, marriages end as a result of adultery. If you are the victim of adultery, you may feel deeply hurt, angry, or humiliated. You may not feel you can trust your spouse and may not be able to trust anyone for a period of.
Time. your selfesteem may be deeply damaged. if you’re the one who committed adultery, you may be feeling guilty, regret your conduct, or just want this whole process behind you. It’s a very difficult time for everyone involved. In Ontario, from a legal point of view, adultery is not a factor to be considered when resolving the legal issues. It won’t be considered when determining the proper level of child support or spousal support, determining the division of property, or any equalization of property.
Adultery will not impact how custody and access arrangements or parenting plans are determined. We have what we call a nofault system in Ontario. This isn’t the case everywhere in the world, but this is the reality in Ontario. Of course, adultery may have a huge impact on how you feel and how you are able to negotiate the legal issues, but it’s not to be taken into consideration when determining custody, access, child support, spousal support, or issues related to property.
