While there is no law prohibiting dating while going through a divorce, doing so could still affect the legal proceedings between you and your soon-to-be-former spouse in a few ways: If you date a new person, and especially if you move in with them, the court may decide you need less assistance, if any.
Can I date before divorce is final?
Yes – No – Maybe. You need to be separated for a year before being formally divorced and granted a divorce order by the Family Court. The key element looked at by the court is “separation” – that is the unequivocal and clearly communicated decision to end the relationship.
Are you cheating if you are separated?
Couples who are separated, whether informally or legally, are still married in the eyes of the law, regardless of how independent their lives have become. This means that if either spouse has a sexual relationship with another person during the separation period, they have probably committed adultery.
