Marriage separation dating
Please note, while debt accrued by a spouse post-separation may not be found to be marital debt by the court, a spouse may still be liable to a lender for debt accumulated by the other spouse post-separation if they are a co-signer on the line of credit/loan.
The date of separation is especially important under Pennsylvania law in non-consent based divorces, as there is a two-year time period that must pass before one party can obtain a unilateral “no-fault” divorce without the consent of the other spouse.
In some states, dating doesn't cause any issues, but moving back in together can affect your legal separation.
If you file for an at-fault divorce in your state, check with your lawyer before beginning a dating relationship.
It is also important to separate the joint finances.
This means that joint bank accounts should be closed and the parties should also stop accumulating joint or marital debts.Decide before you begin dating your spouse if sex is on the table.
