Dating during custody battle
Compiled by Cordell & Cordell Divorce Attorneys For Men The divorce process is usually very difficult and trying for anyone experiencing it.
I know he didn't want to involve me in this case, which I wouldn't want to involve me new love either... It does sound that way to me because if he liked you and wanted to spend time nothing would stop him.
Your spouse’s discovery of your interest in another woman or man (as the case may be) could unravel a settlement as to custody.
The sudden or unexpected “insertion” of another “parent” figure in your child’s life is often experienced as a threatening disruption by the child’s other biological parent (or your spouse’s own parents); and many spouses react to such a threat by insisting that the child be totally insulated from a new girl- or boyfriend.
While this insistence may be highly unrealistic, its frequent result is to upset a couple’s custody plans.
Whether your custody plans were once agreed on, or are now coming apart because of a new dating partner, or whether there never were any agreed on plans, your spouse could try to use the presence of a new person in your life as a “weapon” against your gaining custody of your child or against your continuing to have custody.
