Dating while separated

New York, NY |
Filed under: Divorce

Under NY state law, are there legal ramifications for dating while separated before divorce is final?

Attorney Answers 2


  1. There is no problem with dating while waiting for your divorce to be final.


  2. If the separation is legal or if divorce proceedings have been initiated by a filing in court the marital period is terminated and thus there is no issue with dating.
