Is It a Good Idea to Date While Divorcing?

One of the biggest challenges when it comes to divorce is the loneliness. While you once had a partner to spend your weekends with or attend social gatherings with, you now find yourself alone a lot more often than before. Dating is a natural progression following divorce, though some people start prior to the finalization of their divorce because the process takes too long. Our divorce lawyers of Camille Borg Law PLLC will advise you the best course of action depending on your particular situation, which is why you should enlist our services immediately.

While in some instances, it may be a good idea to date while divorcing because it will allow you to get your mind off the end of your marriage, it entirely depends on the specifics of your situation. In some instances, we recommend against dating while divorcing for a number of reasons. Firstly, this may affect your child custody or child support order, as your ex-spouse may take offense to your active dating life and will use it against you during the divorce battle. He or she may say dating makes you an unfit parent. Another important reason why it may be best to avoid dating while divorcing is it may affect your settlement strategy. If you are expecting spousal support from your ex, he or she may not agree to the terms of your divorce if you are in a relationship with someone else.

Sometimes, finalizing your divorce can take years, which is why it is understandable you may not want to wait to get back into the dating pool. Overall, however, there is no harm in taking your time before you are public about a new relationship.
