Question: Is it illegal to date while legally separated?

Yes, you can date someone else after you separate from your spouse. There is nothing illegal or wrong about dating while married and waiting for your divorce as long as you are living separate and apart.

Can you date if legally separated?

The key element looked at by the court is “separation” – that is the unequivocal and clearly communicated decision to end the relationship. This question borders on the realm of relationship advice not legal advice. In short, there is no legal restriction on dating.
