Does infidelity affect spousal support rewards?
Does infidelity impact spousal support awards in Oregon? Because Oregon is a no fault state infidelity doesn't directly impact spousal support awards. Judges can use a fair and equitable standard in order to set spousal support. What that means is that in one case, one party may make $10,000 and the other party may make $3,000, but you may have different spousal support awards because of the factors between the two parties. One of those factors indirectly may be that one spouse did commit adultery. And while the reason for the increase may not be the adultery, it could be money spent on an affair or trips that they took with the girlfriend or boyfriend or whomever it may be. So it can have an indirect effect on a spousal support award in Oregon.
