Affair’s Effect on Finances and Maintenance

my soon to be ex has spent thousands for 2 yrs. on his mistress and has now hired her in our own business without my knowledge. we are in the midst of separation and divorce. can any money he’s spent on her be reimbursed or used in maintenance? also is there a precedent for suing the mistress for breaking up a marriage?

Unless your husband has incurred debt to support his mistress which he can be obligated to pay, any money that he has spent is gone. There is no precedent for suing a mistress for breaking up a marriage. This is a no fault state. In other words, the Court doesn’t care why your marriage is ending, and who did what to whom. It is simply about kids, money and property.
