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

If you start dating someone before your divorce is final, it will not impact your divorce unless you have engaged in inappropriate behavior. You have inappropriately exposed your minor children to this new relationship, or you have expended funds that you claimed you did not have on this new relationship, and somehow, not paid your support obligations. We do not live in the 16th century. We are allowed to go on with our lives during a divorce, however, you need to use good judgment.
