Thanks for your question.
To enable me to answer your question could you please respond to the following:-
Thanks for your reply.
I think you can relax.
Seeing someone after divorce proceedings has commenced does not affect it one bit. There is no illegal act and the fact that one party is simply dating another third party does not prejudice that person in terms of financial settlement or otherwise.
The only way it could affect would be if you slept with the person and then your wife cross-petitioned on the basis of your adultery

I will answer your follow up questions you may have.
If he were to cross-petition and you did not admit adultery then the only option he would have would be to have it heard in open court in an attempt to prove it. This happens only VERY rarely and he presumably would not do this because he could not prove it and it would also be very expensive
I trust this clarifies, if so please click accept.
