If you want to present your strongest case in a custody battle, you need to wait to date someone until after you are divorced. Also, you may find that your child may be able to cope with your divorce a little easier if you are not adding third parties to the picture. Good luck.

You generally have thirty days from the date of the entry of the Order to file a Notice of Appeal. If you were not properly served with process the Court does not have personal jurisdiction over you and you can petition to have the divorce set aside and any Order void.
