Destructive behaviors during the divorce process

Ending one's marriage can be incredibly overwhelming from an emotional standpoint and financially as well. People may become very stressed out due to concerns about how child custody will be awarded, marital property will be divided or how much alimony will need to be paid. Sometimes, people carry out certain destructive behaviors during this time, which can have a negative impact on their divorce case. If you are working through a divorce, it is important to try to prevent these problems from arising.

Sometimes, a person may become angry with the other parent of their child while they are in the middle of a dispute over custody. When this occurs, the person may send an angry text or leave a threatening message. Aside from custody disputes, there are many other family law topics that can lead to negative feelings and threatening messages, such as the amount of child support that will need to be paid. In some cases, people may even become physically aggressive during a divorce or they may exhibit other types of destructive behaviors, such as substance abuse or driving while intoxicated. If you are going through a custody dispute, for example, you may want to bring these issues up in court.

If your spouse's behavior has become destructive during your divorce or after you mentioned filing for divorce, it is important to protect yourself and be aware of your rights. Our fathers' rights section has even more material on different family law topics that you may want to go over.
