Conduct Of Parties

What effect does the conduct of the parties have on property division? Very little, unless the conduct was intended to harm the other party.

Some judges will punish a party for adultery, psychological abuse of the spouse, or other misconduct that is morally improper; however, the number of jurists who do so is falling.

On the other hand, fraud, squandering money, spending money for the benefit of paramour’s and activities of that nature are frowned upon by virtually every judge and such misconduct will usually be punished via a lopsided division of property.
