Minnesota is a no fault state, which means that a party can ask for divorce without any specific reason other than irretrievable breakdown of marriage. However, being a no fault state also means that having an affair is not typically considered in the issues reviewed in a divorce proceeding. In other words, having a spouse who was was unfaithful does not automatically put the other spouse in a “win” position as far as the court is concerned. When infidelity is thrown into the mix, it can affect some outcomes of a divorce case. For instance, spending marital assets on a boyfriend or girlfriend, spending time with the boyfriend or girlfriend rather than with the children, or moving in and creating a new cohabitation situation can all be factors that can come into play in a divorce case.
