Start Dating during legal separation

Dating during legal separation

Even if you are living under a separate roof from your new partner, if you share each other’s households this could be construed as living together, which could affect the way the court looks at what you need financially for the future. Likewise it is not a good idea to mix finances with your new partner whilst you are sorting out your divorce.

However, it also offers an exciting second chance at love.

If your spouse is supportive and you have managed to maintain good lines of communication with them, it can be helpful to discuss how to handle introducing new partners to the children before any new partners arrive on the scene!

This isn’t always feasible; but if the children are unsettled, angry, nervous or upset by the separation, then it may be better left for a bit.

If you have children, it is always difficult to know what and when to tell them about a new relationship.
