Q: Me and my wife are separated in NC. Would it look bad on me if another women moved in with me during the separation?
Wouldn't be great, but it largely depends on what claims are being raised, and on additional facts (how long have you been separated, did you know this person before you separated). If there is some suspicion that you were being unfaithful on your spouse, this new person moving in will naturally lead your spouse to believe that adultery clearly took place before you had separated.
Should have little to no impact on your property division claims, but it could significantly impact a spousal support claim. Obviously won't affect the divorce itself.
