Is dating during separation adultery?

December 29, 2023 in Divorce

Generally speaking, dating during separation is not considered adultery in terms of how it affects things like alimony. Florida courts look at economic factors when deciding on alimony, not whether someone dated or committed adultery. The Florida Supreme Court has said that for something like adultery to affect alimony, it has to have an economic impact, like causing a loss of family resources. So, if you date someone while separated, it’s not automatically seen as adultery that would change alimony or other divorce-related decisions.
