Dating during divorce process tn auckland dating scene
Every once in a while, our Jackson divorce lawyer at Casey, Simmons & Bryant, PLLC gets a client that asks, “Is it okay if I go out on a date?
” And our immediate response is simply always, “Wait until your divorce is final.” However, life is often not so simple.
Others start dating right away, as a distraction or to combat feelings of loneliness.
If you both agree to allow the other to date during the divorce process will it negatively affect your divorce case?
You can most likely be divorced on no-fault grounds even if you see others after you become separated.
In fact, in Texas where I practice, the parties can still be divorced on no-fault grounds even if one party committed adultery during the time the parties lived together as husband and wife, so long as both parties agree to proceed with the no-fault option.
It is true that any romantic relationship outside your marriage is technically adultery.
Whether or parties must be divorced on adultery grounds when the parties did not begin to see other people until after the separation is a different issue, however.
The appropriate lawful ground will be that which the parties agree upon and can substantiate, or that which the filing spouse desires to prove to the court.
