If I start dating someone before my divorce is final, can it be use against me?


In Florida, we have what’s called a no fault divorce. There’s no reason, other than that the marriage is irretrievably broken. If you have children, certainly starting a new relationship prior to your divorce being finalized can affect what the judge decides with regard to your children. If you have no children, we’re all adults and adults can make decisions for themselves. It may not look good to a judge, but ultimately that’s your choice.
