Divorce cases are complicated as well as disturbing for the couple, but they can get even more complicated if adultery is involved. Some states, such as Florida, have a “no fault” policy when it comes to dealing with adultery during a divorce, the laws related to adultery do come into play based on the situation of the case. Depending on the factors, the judge may determine further investigation, especially if there was a financial expenditure involved that went along with the extramarital affair in cases of divorce.
Ashley Madison, a Canadian-based online dating service and social marketing service, is the dating destination for casual encounters. People interested in having an affair, married dating, discreet encounters as well as extramarital affairs use it all the time.
According to statistics and reports, the website is said to be responsible for the increase in divorce cases around the world, as well as an increase in the number of suicides. BBC news also covered the bulletin in a report titled ‘Suicides’ over Ashley Madison hack.

Moreover, you can easily find out if your spouse is on Ashley Madison if you know their email address, which they may have used to access the website. You can also use the website search option to find out using their name. However, those trying to pry around may be warned that there may be legal consequences associated if you attempt to access their account information illegally. That is why, it is not advised or encouraged that you go ahead looking for evidence or visit websites where you can search for your allegedly cheating spouse.

A report by USAToday.com stated that you should not download the list provided by Ashley Madison as you would be taking stolen property. Doing so may even become a factor in the divorce case fall-out from the hack under Florida Law.
