You aren’t breaking any laws if you get engaged during a divorce in Queens, but you are creating a situation that is very likely to cause you significant, and potentially costly, headaches during the divorce.
What To Avoid When Getting Engaged During A Divorce
You should be extremely cautious with purchases like expensive gifts for a new romantic partner, because during the divorce itself, your spouse can ask you to prove that such gifts weren’t paid for with marital funds.
Discretion is the best policy, and while you may be eager to jump into a relationship that works after leaving one that doesn’t, giving the divorce time to play out is the best policy for your wallet and your new relationship.
Get good advice before proceeding with an engagement before your marriage ends.
