Dating

Seeing Other People during Your Memphis Divorce Proceedings

Do not date. You are married. Your spouse can use it against you. If you are divorced, moving in with your lover could cause problems with parenting or alimony. If you do date, be prepared to face the problems that may arise. Tell our team about it, because if we are surprised by it in court, it will hurt your case. If you date, do not throw it in your spouse’s face. This will make bad feelings worse, and it is proof against you at trial (confession). Avoid dating at social events your spouse may attend. Really avoid having your picture taken and published in a society column, magazine, or online. Remember, it will be hard to explain why you “did not pay” or “cannot afford” it if you took your date to an expensive event or trip.

Do not lie about dating. Although judges do not like people “fooling around,” they are not usually too angry when they hear about it. Judges are much more likely to get mad if they are being lied to. Lying under oath can result in your going to jail for contempt of court on the crime of perjury.

Reviews from People Who Have Been There

  • He explained every little step and guided me through that difficult time, giving me solid, sensible advice all the while.

    “Mr. Rice was so kind and patient that soon my fears abated.”

    Mary

  • Polished, Thorough, and Personable

    ““I retained Ms. Pfenson last year to fight a motion to modify custody. She is very personable, responsive, and easy to talk to. Seems unusual to find that combination of skills and qualities but Ms. Pfenson has them. I would recommend her to anyone dealing with a family law matter. I feel very confident having her on my side. She plays to win. Highly recommend her.”

    Former Client

  • I called Larry and I’m glad I did.

    “Larry guided me through the process to reach an acceptable out of court settlement, which was absolute Godsend for my particular case.”

    Carl

  • Without his help I would have never been able to raise my children.

    “The end result has been that my kids have spent at least half the time with me and eight years later we’re looking at two well rounded Christians and College Scholarships for my oldest who graduates this year.”

    Russell

  • They always made time for me and made me feel like a priority.
