The legal framework

ADULTERY: Cass.1ère Civ, May 18, 2005, appeal number 04-13745:

The Court of Cassation goes even further by admitting as admissible proof of adultery obtained by a shadowing report from a private detective.

ADULTERY: Article 212 of the Civil Code.

Spouses owe each other mutual respect, fidelity, help, assistance.

Adultery always constitutes a violation of the duties and obligations of marriage.

ADULTERY: Articles 266 and 1382 of the Civil Code and articles 270 and 271 of the Civil Code.

Highlighting an adulterous relationship in the context of fault-based divorce proceedings makes it possible, on the one hand, to negotiate a possible compensatory benefit, and on the other hand, to negotiate damages and interest for the fault committed.

COMPENSATORY BENEFIT: Article 270 of the Civil Code.

The compensatory benefit is a sum of money paid to one of the spouses to compensate for the change in standard of living caused by “the breakdown of the marriage”.

SUPPORT: Article 205 to 207 of the Civil Code.

Alimony is not strictly speaking reserved for divorce because any spouse, ascendant, descendant or relative can request alimony. However, we will focus on the alimony established in the context of a divorce for the maintenance and education of the couple's children.

CHILD CARE: Article 373-2-11 of the Civil Code.

CHILD CUSTODY: Articles 227-5 et seq. of the Penal Code.

Failure to respect this right of visitation or accommodation is punishable.

All CONFIDENCIA INVESTIGATIONS reports are admissible in court
