Not by itself, depends on the totality of the case.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

There's actually a few number of people here who were talking to their current signifigant other while waiting for the divorce process.

Divorces can take a long time, even ones where everythings rosy. My exhusband and I seperated and he moved out of the house to his girlfriends house the same month we seperated and the same month that I started dating my fiance. MOST divorce decree's say at the very beginning the date of seperation, tbqh that dates more important than the divorce finalization in cases like this. Due to lack of money we didn't file for divorce until december, but weren't living together and each had our own boyfriend/girlfriend since March. The divorce wasn't finalized until June and it was an easy divorce too, uncontested, everything agree'd apon, just had to wait for the paper work to make it through. We didn't file for the K1 immediately though, we wanted to after we got engaged and were ready for the step. We got engaged 6 months after the divorce was finalized and petitioned for K1 10 months after the divorce was finalized. Over all relationship has been going on for over 2 years now.

That said, as long as there's no reason to believe that she got a divorce to say just bring you into the country then you're fine. Everyone's situation is different, divorce can take a while, and that's usually taken into consideration in cases like this.

Either way there are people here who have been in the same boat and it wasn't an issue, even for those who applied for the K1 the day after they got their divorce decree finalized.
