Question: Can you date if you are separated from your spouse?

Dont even consider dating until youve physically separated from your spouse, even if you or your spouse agree that the marriage is over. A good rule of thumb is to wait until after youre divorced to begin dating and then only introduce your children to a partner after youve been dating for at least six months.

How long does it take to get legally separated?

To get a legal separation you must file a petition in your Superior or Family Division Court. It is a distinct legal product rather than being a first step to getting a divorce. In fact, legal separation takes as long as a divorce (average time, 8-10 months), and costs just as much.
