Can I date while going through a divorce?

Yes – No – Maybe. It is completely up to you! Subject to any other personal restrictions or other religious rules.

You need to be separated for a year before being formally divorced and granted a divorce order by the Family Court. The key element looked at by the court is “separation” – that is the unequivocal and clearly communicated decision to end the relationship. Fault or conduct of the other party is not relevant.

We would recommend you end your existing relationship before commencing a new one but appreciate that this ending could just entail “moving out”. This question borders on the realm of relationship advice not legal advice. In short, there is no legal restriction on ‘dating’.
