My ex wife filed for divorce in 2018 but was denied because she filed the wrong divorce, however I was ordered to pay child support and spousal support. At the time I didn't know the divorce was denied because I was ordered to pay the judgement.
My spouse was caught cheating, though we gave it another shot. He is showing signs of cheating again, and will not allow me access to his phone any further. Would the court be able to pull his phone record so I can have a fault divorce. I believe it will speed up the process.
Having a adultery, fault based divorce actually will slow down the process significantly. And it is much more difficult than a no fault divorce. You should probably pursue a no fault divorce; you can receive all of the relief you need through the regular process as well.
