What About Dating & Divorce?
Part of the healing process during and after a divorce may include the
idea of revitalizing one's social life and possibly forming new relationships.
In the initial emotional stages of a divorce, you may be more consumed
by emotions such as depression, grief, shock, and anger.
You may feel unable to even consider dating again.
However, as time goes by and you begin to feel like yourself again, you
may begin to consider dating other people. It is important that you proceed
with caution. Your personal life is one thing—a family law court's
interest in your affairs as they pertain to your divorce is another.
Protecting Yourself in the Eyes of the Family Law Court

the possibility that they could have an influence on outcomes in your
Your spouse's lawyer may contend that you have been engaged in wanton
dissipation of marital assets or can obviously afford to pay more in
alimony or child support. If your spouse believes that you are engaged in immorality
based on any public display of your dating activities, this argument may
be used in favor of restricting your child custody or visitation rights.
We at Stolar & Associates, A Professional Law Corporation can help
you proceed with caution.

The Dangers of Social Media
You are no doubt aware of the ubiquitous nature of social media websites
such as Facebook. Even if you do not post photos of your dating or do
not even have a Facebook page, it is always possible that other people
will post pictures of you and whomever you socialize with, making your
personal life public. When divorces involve well-known professional athletes
or entertainers, publicity could go even further into mainstream media outlets.
