In most at-fault divorce states, adultery is one of many grounds on which a spouse can be granted a dissolution of their marriage.

Another 20 percent blamed the end of the marriage on some other financial issue.

Do you really need representation by a divorce attorney?

Those just beginning the divorce process often believe they can handle the entire matter without representation. Sometimes, this is true and the two spouses experience few, if any, problems. Other times, however, things fall apart and one or both spouses discover that not seeking counsel was a mistake.
