Hi I am filling out the application for divorce in grounds of adultery. Has anyone got any advice on what to enter (what not to enter) in the supporting information/ statement if case?

Sorry you are going through this. I also did this recently using the online system.
I kept the statement very factual eg dates, places etc and described the evidence on bank statements of hotel bills etc. I didn't enter OW name although there is an option to do this. If you do, they get a copy of divorce papers and I simply didn't want her in my life any more than was necessary. I don't think anyone cares about the details as long as it fits criteria for adultery. Mine went through quickly and ex has accepted it. I requested he pay divorce costs too - not sure if he will stick to that although he has agreed initially... Good Luck and good riddance to these cheating b**stards!

If your ex admits Adultery then your Divorce petition should be accepted by the Courts. However, if your ex denies the Courts may ask you to provide evidence which according to my solicitor is difficult unless you catch them in the act.

Being seen with another person, social websites or even hotel reservations that name the other person does not prove adultery even though it is a good bet what is happening.

Hence Divorce on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour is more common.

Good luck.
