If You Are Dating Someone While Legally Separated In Ct Can You Be Accused Of Adultery In Divorce Proceedings?
First and foremost, this is really a question you should be asking your attorney if you have already obtained legal representation as laws can be fairly complex. If you have not sought out legal counsel, then I strongly recommend that you do given your question.
Divorce attorneys usually frown upon dating during the divorce process because having a girlfriend can potentially have a negative impact the outcome of divorce proceedings. It is true that any romantic relationship outside your marriage is technically adultery. Whether or not the parties must be divorced on adultery grounds when the parties did not begin to see other people until after the separation is a different issue, however.
You can most likely be divorced on no-fault grounds even if you see others after you become separated. In fact, in Texas the parties can still be divorced on no-fault grounds even if one party committed adultery during the time the parties lived together as husband and wife, so long as both parties agree to proceed with the no-fault option.
Many times, where adultery was present, couples decide they do not want allegations of adultery in a public record, or they do not want to escalate an already tense situation, so they agree to divorce on no-fault grounds.
In order to divorce on no-fault grounds in some states, the parties must live apart and not cohabitate with each other for an extended period of time. This usually means that they cannot live with each other under the same roof. So long as they meet that portion of the requirement, most courts do not force the parties to choose a fault option like adultery just because facts about adultery are present.
The next issue I will address is what can happen if you and your wife no longer agree to proceed on no-fault grounds after you begin dating other people.
It is always difficult to anticipate how your ex will react to the stress of the divorce, and it is especially difficult to predict how she might feel when she knows you are dating again. This could affect what was previously an amicable separation leading towards settlement.
In addition, post-separation dating could be used as evidence of adultery during the time you lived together as husband and wife if your wife could prove or even suggest that this new relationship is actually a continuance of a relationship you began prior to the separation.
In that case, she could re-file or amend her pleadings to proceed on adultery grounds, which could affect everything from property settlement to alimony. This could also affect your new dating interests in states that allow civil suits against “people who interfere with a marriage.”
However, if the people you begin dating are genuinely new romantic interests that began after the date of separation, and there is ample proof that the separation was permanent and final, then it is unlikely your wife would be able to prove the new relationship led to the breakdown of the marriage, as the marriage was broken prior to the new relationship beginning.
It would be beneficial to consult an attorney licensed in your state to see if a clause confirming and acknowledging that no extra-marital affairs contributed to the decision to separate could be inserted into a separation agreement and upheld in court.
My concern would be if your wife could later prove that you had an affair that she did not know about at the time she signed the agreement, and she could argue that the affair was your motivation for separation, which may be enough for adultery grounds.

Casa De Contratacion Can Anyone Help Me?
What Were The Commercial Laws Administered By Casa De Contratacion?
La Casa de Contratación (The House of Trade) was a government agency under the Spanish Empire from the 16th to the 18th centuries, which attempted to control all Spanish exploration and colonization. Its official name was La Casa y Audiencia de Indias.
Unlike the later East India Companies, chartered companies established by the Dutch, English, and others, the Casa collected all colonial taxes and duties, approved all voyages of exploration and trade, maintained secret information on trade routes and new discoveries, licensed captains, and administered commercial law.
In theory, no Spaniard could sail anywhere without the approval of the Casa. However, smuggling often took place in different parts of the vast Spanish Empire.~
Do You Think It'S &Quot;Fair&Quot; That In Union Contracts Lawyer Fees Are Included?
So If Some Union Worker Breaks The Law- The Tax Payers Are Paying For Their Legal Fees? You Fricking Kidding Me! The Greed Is Getting Worse And Worse In These Unions! They Will Destroy Our Country!
Labor had lawyers to represent them in negotiations with management, why not, management has its staff of lawyers too.
I think you're a little confused about what lawyers do, its not for criminal charges, and its union dues that pay for it, not taxpayer money.
You really are confused, or trolling. Paint your moms house, if its so bad the zoning commission is going after her its got to be a dump, but her taxes aren't going to pay for a union worker busted for drunk driving.
What Is The Best Legal Self-Defense Tool That You Can Carry Around?
I'M Moving To A City To Study Medical School And I'M Afraid Of Getting Mugged Because The City Is Well Below First Class And The City Is Known For Its Crime Rate. Due To Reasons Of Privacy, I Am Not Going To Name The City. However, I Can Reveal That I Must Go Because I Have No Choice As It'S The Only School That Will Offer Me Financial Aid.
Carrying Guns And/Or Knives/Switchblades Is Not Only Illegal, But Also Harmful To Both People And Myself. So I Do Not Wish To Own Tools Of Murder. And I Only Have This Summer To Learn Some Self-Defense Courses, But, With The Exception Of Jujitsu, Most Of Them Won'T Work Against A Fully Armed Person, Aka People With Knives Or Guns.
I'Ve Heard Of People Recommending Pepper Sprays Or Bear Sprays. Are There Any Other Better Suggestions? I Want The Tool To Be Light, Concealable, And Quick And Easy To Operate. And Most Of All, I Wish For The Tool To Be Legal.
The problem is that you don't tell us where you're going. That does have an impact on what self defense tools you'll be able to use. While you can pretty much find state laws and sometimes city ordinances concerning the use use of less than lethal technology, sometimes you just have to ask local law enforcement.
For someone who's concerned about their safety you sure are politically correct about it. I can assure you that muggers, rapists and thugs generally don't fell the same as you on that issue. In their eyes, your convictions just make you more of a target. Do try to understand their mindset, that's the first way in which you learn to protect yourself. Political correctness can engender a sense of superiority and that's the last thing you want to assume in a potentially violent situation. If you understand your enemy and their motivations, you can better predict what they will do and that in turn will suggest strategies for your survival.
Now once, you've checked the laws on permissible tools you can decide what you want to use. I'd recommend a variety of tools. Personal alarms to distract and deter assailants, pepper spray for stand off value and the ability to engage more than one target and finally, stun guns or Tasers to deal with any opposition that just won't take the hint. Now you could just use one or two of these tools, but if you have overlapping defenses and defenses that complement one another, you really increase the chance that you'll survive an encounter. If you check my blog post on self defense synergy, I go into this in some detail. Anyway, I hope this helps and stay safe out there.
Seeking A New Attorney, But Highly Recommended Attorney Is In The Same Firm/Office.?
I Have An Attorney Who I Think Is Pretty Complacent And Not Representing Us As Strong Or As Aggressive As I Believe She Should. I Have Heard From A Judge Who Is A Friend Of The Family That Another Attorney Does Real Well In The Court Room. The Down Side Is The New Attorney Is In The Same Office/Firm As The First One... Is It Ethical And Acceptable For Me To Switch Attorneys To One In The Same Firm/Office.
Have you discussed this with your attorney? Your current attorney cannot meet your needs if you fail to communicate with him/her. Before heading down that path, you should at the very least schedule a meeting with the attorney and express your concerns. I can tell you from experience that it is not advisable to change counsel in the middle of litigation. Things get sloppy, even within the same firm. If after you express your concerns and see no improvement, you will still need to speak with your attorney about transferring the case. Some firms have a no-transfer policy and fire you as a client on the spot. Our firm allows this, but I know of firms that do not. They take it as an insult. Yes, there are pompous firms out there LOL.
As a paralegal, I advocate attorney communication. Tell him/her your needs, your concerns and give the attorney a chance to work for you. They can't do that if you just decide one day to fire them. If it doesn't work out, I would recommend speaking to both attorneys regarding the transfer of the file. It happens in our firm because each attorney does specialize in something different. I'm just saying don't get your heart set on it. Not all firms allow it and this new attorney may have too large a case load.
**CAVEAT** I have 1-2 users that intentionally troll my answers to do nothing but automatically rate my answers with a thumbs down regardless of how accurate my answer is. My answer is NOT LEGAL advice and contains information easily found through Internet research. The unauthorized practice of law is defined as giving legal advice and/or representation TO CLIENTS. My answer in no way forms a client relationship. I am not an attorney.
Paralegals are not licensed to practice in any state, nor are paralegals regulated by any legal body. Registration is voluntary in a few states. Please do your research and know more about the paralegal profession before accusing anyone of committing UPL or ignorantly stating that a paralegal license (which no US paralegal has because it does not exist) or education can be revoked.
Living In Southern California And Need A Divorce Lawyer But Cant Afford One?
Ok This Is For A Friend But Not Me.
She Is Attempting To File For Divorce But The Paperwork Is To Confusing And She Also Cannot Find Her Now Ex. She Cant Afford To Pay For Her Legal Services Her Self, And She Has Also Attempted To Go To The Local Self Help Center At Our Court House But They Dont Do Much Else Then Give Her The Paperwork And Tell Her To Refill It Out. What Other Resources Does She Have? She Is Located In La County.
Have your friend call up local lawyers and explain her problem and ask them what it would cost to just have them do the bare minimum and just tell her what she needs to know.In fact show up and ask in person ..they could be sitting there bored..and knowing they are not going to make a fortune doing nothing might just take the five or ten Min's to help her. Normally an attorney would charge by the hour, for advice or instructions , but that is also in an ongoing relationship. I think she could find one that was willing to just charge her a small fee to file papers for her. The reason I say that is that is exactly what I did...and I found a lawyer who did it for me or i should say told me what to do ... by the way...he only charged me 76 dollars..I too was in L.A. co...my ex was also missing ..so a fee for an ad in the newspaper will be needed ..not much!!..and I guess that is very nice of a person.
Hope you can be as lucky!!!
ps. if your friend cannot even afford less than a hundred dollars for a serious thing like divorce ..she has much bigger things to worry about than a divorce.This is not a put down in any way just comon sense. I wish her the best!!
