Minnesota Divorce and Dating
Divorce and Dating

We are often asked whether it is detrimental to date before a divorce is final. The short answer is "NO" but with reservations.

Minnesota and Wisconsin and most other states are "no fault divorce" states. That means that "fault" does not affect any of the issues in the divorce process. Infidelity during the marriage and dating after the divorce process has begun are non-issues in the legal proceedings.

With that said, even though dating does not create a legal issue, it may create tension and anger which is funneled into the divorce process. This can often lead to higher legal fees as divorcing couples use the divorce process to exact their revenge on the other party.

Additionally, though dating itself may not be an issue in divorce, any person who has frequent access to your children may become a target of investigation. If an argument can be made that your new significant other poses a detriment to the children, it can become a factor in custody and visitation issues.

  • DON'T rush into a dating relationship
  • DON'T flaunt the fact that you are dating to your spouse
  • DO know the person you are dating so that there are no repercussions in your divorce
