Living with someone can impact the level of support ordered Another point that you should think about if you are considering living with your boyfriend is that it will affect the level of support you may eventually receive.
Even if you ultimately get custody of your children, child support levels may be lowered because you are living with someone and sharing the expenses.
He may try to even the score by fighting about custody of the children or how to split the marital estate.
If you have children, then you also need to realize that it's in your best interest to try to keep a cordial relationship with your husband.
So what should you do if you believe that this new man is the one you should have married in the first place?
Make life easier on you and him both by postponing the relationship until the divorce is finalized.
The bottom line is that if you date during your divorce, you are giving your husband a big advantage. Wait until after the divorce is finalized before you start to date.
This will put your boyfriend smack-dab in the middle of your divorce, which is a quick way to put a damper on your new relationship.
You need to be especially careful if you have children from your marriage.
Not only will both you and your husband's conduct be scrutinized during a custody case, but also so will be the conduct of your boyfriend.
If he has a shady background, it will be used against you.
