If you are legally separated, you are free to see other people. South Carolina divorce does use adultery as one of the grounds options, but dating while you are separated is not adultery.
Separated? -- NO. Divorced? -- Depends. Depends if it's a 'scriptural' divorce or not. And then the 'scriptural' divorce needs to be legally handled; before any other dating or courtship can resume .
It is not as simple as that. Legal separation and divorce are two very different concepts and you could be separated for years and the other spouse would still be able to contest the divorce. It is a right that they have in the divorce proceeding ad the legal status leading up to the divorce will hold no bearing on their ability to do so. It should be noted, however that if you want a divorce, you will get a divorce whether it is contested or uncontested. Courts simply will not keep you in a legal relationship you no longer wish to be a part of.
No. The couple is legally married until they have been granted a divorce. That means they are legally entitled to each other's estate in the case of death.
separated in any state of the country.
You are two people who are married to each other who are separated.

When two people can no longer stay in the marriage they may separate until they either decide if they want to continue on with the marriage or until they can afford a divorce so no, it is not adultery as far as cheating, but the two spouses are still legally married so beware, because if one or the other spouse even though separated wants a reason for the divorce they could use the fact during separation that their spouse is seeing someone else. Since your partner has filed for divorce you should seek legal counsel.
It is not required that both parties sign the divorce papers in NY or any other state. The judge has the power to grant the divorce.

Who ever answered this question is pretty much mis-informed. Mark Kelly did not move out for several months after his divorce in 2005, he was seeing Gabby long before she was seeing someone else and they were never "separated" before the divorce. The only truth in the other answer is he did meet Gabby in 2003 and has 2 daughters from his former wife. People shouldn't answer personal questions about people that they do not know or know the answer to.
If both parties will not sign the divorce papers then the court will deciede. Depends what state you are in. Indiana is a no fault state meaning if you want to divorce you will be allowed to regardless if the other party wants to or not.
The same as people in any other country would. They do not like each other. It's as simple as that.
Yes if you love each other and you have a good relationship together. Being separated is easy, but getting a divorce is harder and can be expensive. I was separated from my first husband when I met my 2nd husband. I was up front with him because I wanted him to know the risks he could be taking (I was filing for divorce and my boyfriend could be named in the divorce by my ex) and he was thankfully willing to take the risk. He lived with me on the weekends only (just the way it was) and things worked out well. I eventually managed to get my divorce in time. The only reason I wanted the divorce was because it would free me up if I ever chose to get married, which I did. Good luck Marcy

The person filing the divorce, would file in the state they are a resident in.
Sometimes people decide they are unhappy together or no longer love each other and decide to get a divorce. It is important to know that it is NEVER the child's fault when parents get a divorce, the child did not cause the divorce and is not to blame
When me an my ex-wife separated it was two more years before we finalized a divorce. We both dated people during that time. She was even pregnant with another guys baby and had it while we were still legally married - I had to put in the decree that I wasn't legally obligated to support the child, but other than that, the actual act of us dating/sleeping with other people didn't have any effect on the divorce. The reason for divorce on the papers reads: "separated for an extended period" or some such. Nothing about being unfaithful or anything like that since it all happend after the separation. Of course we were still kind of friends with each other, and didn't hate each other. I suppose one of us could have made it harder on the other if we had so chosen, but since we didn't even try going down that path I couldn't say one way or the other.AnswerI would wait, myself.
It is not illegal. In most western countries it is not even against the law to commit adultery when you are married are not separated.
