In Arizona, and most states I would think, since the grounds for a dissolution are that the marriage is irretrievably broken, with no prospect of reconciliation, the court may not be that concerned with whether or not you have evidence of adultery. You should consult with an experienced family law attorney in your area to assist you with these questions.

California does not have fault divorce. This is a no-fault state and it is not necessary to prove fault or adultery.

Not really. What is more important is what would you hope to gain? California is a no fault divorce state. Adultery by either party makes absolutely no difference from a legal standpoint so I am unsure as to why you want to "prove" adultery. You should consult with a family law attorney in your area as soon as possible.

    If you say things in the texts that indicate a physical relationship, yes, they will prove adultery.

    Indiana is a no-fault divorce state so proof of adultery isn't going to help in the divorce matter, unless custody an issue and the conduct is somehow relevant to the child(ren).

    This is a "no-fault" state - there is no reason to prove adultery. On the other hand, if you have proof that your spouse spent a significant amount of money on a third party (regardless of the relationship), the court could find that to be a dissipation of a marital asset and order him to reimburse you for half.
