My wife and I have been sepersted since November 2015 after

Resolved Question:

Hi, my wife and I have been sepersted since November 2015 after I found out about an affair she had some months earlier. I originally wanted to divorce her on the grounds of adultery, after her repeated plea for me not to do it on those grounds (save her dignity) I rescinded and then had left it to her to do an online application. That never really happened in the following months, but now she has a desperate urg to conclude this (new guy). She has asked that inorder to have completed the two year separation period required, would I agree that we separate in the March and not the following November!! This would obviously cancel out the affair she had, on paper anyway. My question is, if I agree to this, will I be disadvantaged in anyway? We have never discussed a financial separation. Many thanks Andy

As an Officer of the Court (all solicitors are) I cannot encourage anyone to lie to the court about what has happened.However the grounds for a divorce do not effect the Financial Settlement and whether you separated before or after she slept with someone else is not relevantI hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
