Lawmakers Discuss Divorce Bill In Helena

(Helena, MT) — Adultery and physical abuse could come into play during a couple’s divorce in Montana. That’s according to a proposed law discussed by state lawmakers during a hearing on Friday. Under the legislation, those factors may be considered by the court when figuring out how to divide property and assets.

One person testifying in support of the measure said it would help victims with recovery.
