Family law and bullying from an ex-spouse

Family law disputes may involve a wide variety of legal issues, such as those brought on by disagreements over a child custody arrangement, discontent regarding the division of marital property, or even bitterness about one's decision to end the marriage. Unfortunately, these disputes can be quite tough for some couples to work through and there are times when behavior might get out of line. For example, someone might bully their former spouse.

There are all sorts of ways that someone might experience bullying at the hands of their ex-spouse or someone who they will soon be splitting up with. For example, a victim may be subjected to threats and damaging lies that harm their reputation over the internet. With social media and other digital platforms, bullying has become especially problematic. Or, a former spouse might make threats over the phone or, in some instances, physically assault another person.

From relatively minor comments that make life difficult to domestic violence, people experience various kinds of mistreatment at the hands of someone they used to love. If you have experienced bullying in a way that violates the law or could affect your family law case, it is essential to review what to do next. You should always strive to protect your rights and, if you have children, work for an outcome that is the healthiest for your kids.

Navigating through family law issues can be challenging, but it is pivotal to make sure you take the right approach. Our law office's fathers' rights page provides information on other family law topics.
