Question #3

I am on social services and want to divorce my estranged wife and was refused legal aid. What else can I do?

I am not aware of any state statute which prohibits an individual from dating, whether before or after divorce papers have been filed. Nevertheless, I think you should seriously consider the possible outcome of dating and becoming seriously involved with another person before you have actually received your divorce. Bigamy is still illegal in most states in the United States, and you will be providing your spouse ammunition to use against you during settlement negotiations and or trial.

Be careful!
