Divorce is a distressing process that can have emotionally devastating consequences. Worse, it often comes on the heels of years of marital conflict. Understandably, divorcing spouses often feel lonely and are eager to begin dating once it becomes clear that their marriage has irreconcilably broken down. However, dating before your divorce is complete can have a negative effect on the outcome of your divorce. 

Flirting and making crude jokes with coworkers is unwise behavior for a number of reasons. Everybody has a different threshold for tolerating this behavior; what someone finds funny, someone else may find downright offensive, and what one person views as harmless flirtation may be perceived by someone else as unwanted harassment. Even a casual observer may object to behavior or language they see or overhear. 

Although most couples in Illinois typically engage in the divorce process together, in some high-conflict divorces, one spouse will refuse to cooperate in the divorce proceedings. Your spouse may become nonresponsive, refuse to negotiate, or refuse to sign divorce papers. This may be in an attempt to control you, get revenge, or even avoid legal consequences due to previous criminal behavior. Whatever the reasons, a non-cooperative spouse can derail the divorce proceedings and make your life very difficult.
