In my Florida divorce case, can I use my spouse’s affair against them?

Marital misconduct in Florida is only going to be relevant where there has been a dissipation of marital funds, or if it can be shown that it has had a direct impact on the children. The purpose of a Dissolution's of Marriage action is not to punish. I would be very wary of someone wanting to use the affair against the other party because that is not the purpose of the legal action.
