My husband and I have been married for one year and agree the marriage isn’t working. We have decided to legally separate, which will result in divorce. If both of us agree, is it appropriate to date?
Until the judge signs the judgment of divorce, you are considered legally married, and it would be illegal to have relations with anyone else until the order is signed and filed in the clerk’s office.
It is crucial that you have experienced legal counsel to prepare your separation and divorce. If you’re located in the New York City metropolitan area, I strongly suggest that you consider mediation, and I would be happy to discuss the matter with you and your spouse at greater length. My number is 212-370-1660. It will save you time, money, and lots of aggravation.
