If I Date During Our Divorce In Brooklyn, Can My Spouse Use That In A Custody Petition?

Realistically, you should be ready for your spouse to use anything they can think of in a custody petition in Brooklyn.

If you’ve started dating, you should be cautious in how you present information in spaces like social media, where spouses have been known to pull photos and postings and distort them for gain in a divorce.

Not only can this material be used in a custody fight, but if your spouse can allege that you’re using marital funds in purchasing things like expensive jewelry or luxury getaways, you may find the court looking at you more closely than you’d like.

Starting a new relationship during a divorce is always difficult, both for the new partner and for the divorce.

Your best course of action is to be cautious, keep being a great parent to your kid, and don’t play up the new relationship when it’s time to work out an issue with your spouse.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you find the best way forward that protects you and your kids.
