Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Consult your attorney before dating. You are married until the divorce is final. Before then a sexual relation with a partner other than your spouse is adultery. Dating without sexual relations can impact negotiations and final outcomes concerning custody, visitation, etc. This is based upon the letter of the law. Often times, parties separate and both move on, dating other people and not necessarily caring or making a big deal about what the other person is doing, during that time. However, if there are children and the boyfriend/girlfriend are around, it could cause problems or if one spouse still wants to try and save the marriage and the other does not, they could make an issue about this. It is something which you do need to be aware of and if you do not have counsel, need to use good judgment. Pleaselet me know if you have any follow up questions or need any clarification onsomething which I stated above. I want to make sure your experience with thesite was as pleasurable as possible and that you are satisfied with the help Iprovided.
