Question: Is it illegal to date someone while going through a divorce?

While there is no law prohibiting dating while going through a divorce, doing so could still affect the legal proceedings between you and your soon-to-be-former spouse in a few ways: If you date a new person, and especially if you move in with them, the court may decide you need less assistance, if any.

What happens if only one person wants divorce?

The truth is that if one person wants a divorce, it can happen. The court needs to agree to grant the divorce, not the other person in the marriage. As long as the necessary financial and legal issues get resolved, the divorce can be completed with one person never agreeing to it.

Can you refuse to divorce someone?

While a spouse can refuse to sign the divorce papers, it is highly likely that the divorce will still take place. However, some situations could delay the divorce. For instance, if the service of the application cannot be proved, the Court can either delay or cancel the Application for Divorce.
