Dating Issues Arising During Divorce And Custody Matters

At Zuckerman Law Group, PC, we are here to answer your questions throughout the divorce process and will take the time to explain your options, rights and the best course of action to achieve optimal results in your divorce case. You may be wondering:

  • Can I date before a divorce is finalized?
  • Will dating impact the results of my case?
  • Does dating before divorce affect a custody or support order?

Custody and Evidence Impacting Court Decisions

Many issues examined by the courts in the past are not relevant during the divorce process. "Moral" issues, including infidelities and outside relationships, had the potential to influence the outcome of the case, where modern decisions usually allow parties to make their own decisions throughout the divorce process. This involves the decision to date before a divorce is finalized.

While dating during divorce will not directly impact the results of your case, it can be looked upon poorly by the court, especially if you have children. If you do decide to date during the divorce process, you should not bring the new significant person into the home or expose your children to situations that may be confusing or difficult. Dating can also distract from the very real and complicated issues faced by your family. If you are already involved in a dating relationship, we can discuss the best ways to move forward with an eye toward shielding your children appropriately.

Our Woburn divorce and dating lawyer can assist you throughout the divorce process. We can assist with all of the following:

Can I Date During Divorce?

When working through custody and visitation agreements, the courts will want to see that you are focused on your children and the best interests of your family. At our firm, we don't tell our clients that they cannot date, but we will keep them advised of any impact that their decisions may have in the divorce process.

Also, be smart. Being discreet and respectful can go a long way in the divorce process. Don't charge meals to a marital account. Don't leave a paper trail. You should keep these details private to prevent any potential emotional or other complications throughout the divorce process. Attorney Lisa Zuckerman is also experienced with cases involving Facebook and divorce.
