DadsDivorce Live: Ashley Madison & Fault-Based Divorce

Ashley Madison, a website dedicated to helping married people cheat, was recently hacked, putting the personal information of its 37 million users at risk.

In the wake of the breach, there has been much speculation as to what, if any, affect the hack could have on the number of couples seeking divorce.

Cordell & Cordell Pennsylvania family law attorney William Phelan recently joined DadsDivorce Live to explain how the breach could lead to more divorces even though most couples typically don’t pursue fault-based divorces. He also explained the impact marital misconduct can have on a divorce settlement and how the rise of social media is playing an increasingly bigger role in the end of many marriages.
