Hi
My apologies for the delay.
No recordings could be used to "prove " the adultery.
In any event it is the worst ground to use for a divorce as it is much easier to use the Unreasonable Behaviour ground - which is almost impossible to defend
The ground used does not effect the financial outcome
Placing a Camera in his office is not a good idea as it could be seen as a public place,
Around the home technically it COULD be an offense if she does not tell her husband - but the police are not likely to be interested let alone get involved hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
