A divorce isn't easy for anyone, but it's particularly hard if you're already interested in seeing someone else. You should know that even if you separate, having a significant other isn't the best idea. Why? If your spouse finds out and has a problem with it, the situation could lead to a divorce where your spouse claims you're at fault.
When you and your estranged spouse no longer get along, determining child custody arrangements in a divorce isn't always easy. You may have little or no communication with one another other than to allow your child to see or communicate with the other parent.
Timing is everything, and that is especially true if you are close to filing for divorce.
