Dating and Remarriage
The decision to date while pursuing a divorce is yours alone, but be aware that introducing a new significant other is very confusing and potentially damaging to your children. More problematic, if parenting time or decision making is at issue, you may face harsh criticism from the judge or a child evaluator as a result of the decision to start dating. Specifically, if there are child-related issues in your case, your personal life could be taken into consideration by the court.
On a very practical level, virtually no husband or wife takes kindly to being ‘instantly’ replaced, and as they say, discretion is the better part of valor. Why make your divorce harder than it will be anyway? If you don’t choose to wait, it is strongly recommended that you exercise discretion and tact.
