[Based on South Carolina Code of Laws Section 20-3-140] On the issue of whether a spouse should date after separation and before divorce, you should understand that post-separation dating can be used as evidence of adultery occurring during the marriage.If there was no illicit sexual conduct before your date of separation, then post-separation dating is not relevant to a claim for post-separation support or alimony.However, a paramour who stays overnight when your children are present can be grounds for denial of your custody or visitation.
You postdate a check by writing a future date on it.
People typically do this when they want to give a check to someone but aren't certain they'll have enough money in their account until a certain date to cover it.
Conversely, if you spouse is engaging in extra-marital affairs, then you are the wronged spouse and are in the position of filing an alienation of affections or criminal conversation lawsuit against your spouse’s paramour.
If that is the case, you are well-advised to obtain proof of his or her affair through a private detective.
Often, bank tellers don't even look at the date while handling checks.
While it's best to avoid postdating checks so you don't run the risk of getting hit with bounced check fees, you can contact the bank with a written or verbal request to hold the check until the future date.
Check recipients can either decide to accept or not accept a post-dated check.
A recipient can also check with her bank to see if it will cash it before the check's date, which the bank should not do if the writer has requested it doesn't. In West Virginia, for example, the law prohibits someone from requesting or accepting a postdated check if he intends to deposit or cash it before the check's date.
You can land in legal trouble if you intentionally postdate a check knowing there will be no money in your account or the account will be closed by the check's date.
To defraud someone in such a way for goods and services is illegal in all states.
If he does cash it early, he can be made to pay fees and costs as well as potential civil penalties.
