My name is ***** ***** I have been a solicitor for more than 35 years.

I am afraid that it is too late for the adultery to be relevant in the divorce - and it will only be relevant in the finances if it is clear that she intends to set up home with this person.

I appreciate that you feel that the discovery changes everything - but in fact it does not change anything and will not be seen as relevant in any way.

I am sorry that the news i s not better - please ask if you need further details

How do I know if she intends to set up home with him
Expert:  Clare replied 10 months ago.

That is a matter she has to disclose within the financial proceedings.

You have a chance to prepare a questionnaire about her Form E and you can ask a specific question about her relationship with this man
