Dating Relations May Require Court Permission

The following bill is presently before the Massachusetts Joint Committee on the Judiciary:

Senate Bill 787
In divorce, separation, or 209A proceedings involving children and a marital home, the party remaining in the home shall not conduct a dating or sexual relationship within the home until a divorce is final and all financial and custody issues are resolved, unless the express permission is granted by the courts.

The bill seeks to amend  Section 31 of chapter 208 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2010 Official Edition.
