Dating during divorce law
The best advice that you would get from your Raleigh divorce lawyer is simple—don’t do it.
Dating can have both personal and legal consequences that can be harmful to your divorce action.
This action has a three year statute of limitations and doesn’t require sexual relations, unlike an action for “criminal conversation”.
The good news, however, is that both of these actions have defenses that can be raised in court.
I also suggest that you be careful about having your boyfriend or girlfriend spend the night when you have overnights with the children.
Innocently, the kids may comment to the other parent about how your boyfriend or girlfriend "tucked them into bed" or "gave them breakfast." This could lead to an emotional response by your spouse and prevent settlement discussions from focusing on the real issues.
