Re: Divorce question : Cheating wife

Swiss Authorities Online (ch.ch) offers an overview of divorce in Switzerland in English:

"Maintenance of ex-spouse After a divorce your ex- husband or wife is normally expected to support him or herself.

Criteria for maintenance contributions

Depending on how long you were married and the division of duties in the marriage, your age, health, level of education, career prospects and financial situation, you may have to continue to support your ex-partner financially, at least for a certain period.
If one of the ex-partners has day-to-day care of the children, the other will also have to pay maintenance to compensate their loss of income.

Calculation of maintenance contributions

The court decides on the size of the maintenance contributions based on:
  • The income of the two individuals: how much each person earns (if the income of the person owing maintenance is over the minimum subsistence level),
  • Financial needs: rent, health insurance, taxes, etc.
An agreement is drawn up by the ex-spouses or the court, which is then examined and approved by the court."
