Good Afternoon

There is no punishment under the law.

It is not illegal for him.

Also if the marriage is over there is no fault and the adultery will make no difference on how the law deals with your assets.

I am really sorry for not being able to give you anything more positive.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.

Regards
Leon
