Best Answer

Yes. Chances are that the relationship was broken long before the separation. There are not laws that would prevent a person from dating. However it might have an impact on the outcome of the proceedings if either spouse decides to file for a dissolution of the marriage.

How long have you to be legally separated before you can apply for a divorce without it being contested?

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.

Is it adultery after you have been separated but they have filed for divorce?

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.

Why did astronaut mark kelly divorce first wife?

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.

Would anyone move in with a separated woman who is not divorced yet?

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

Is it ok to date other people while divorce papers are awaiting a judge's final decree?

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.
