Many spouses have already moved on with their lives, even prior to filing for a divorce. Having a significant other is somewhat mainstream in the divorce process, and having this new person around is comfortable for many spouses and not unusual. Unfortunately, many Courts don’t see it the same way as many spouses, and in fact, Court generally do not like when significant others are around the divorcing parent’s children. The golden rule is to keep your significant other out of contact with the children during the divorce process. Under no circumstances should there be an exception. Many spouses attempt to create what appears to be good reasons to have their significant other around (or around the children) – This is always a bad idea.
