Country relating to Question: United States
State (if USA): Arizona

Hello and welcome,Under the AZ code, a spouse may be prosecuted criminally for adultery only if a complaint is filed by the husband or wife as the case may be.So, you would typically need to contract the local police and file a police report with regard to the conduct you believe constitutes adultery and the prosecutor will ultimately determine whether there is enough evidence to prosecute your spouse.Here is a link to the state code:http://law.justia.com/codes/arizona/2010/title13/13-1408.html
