Family Law is a conveyor belt of relationships. Some long, some short, the new and rekindling the old, but through the years you learn the signs, or things not to do in a New Relationship.

Getting Involved with a Still Married Person. This makes you a target, can quickly over-complicate a situation and could get you involved in Court.
