Threats from your ex during divorce

| Apr 12, 2019 | Divorce |

When a relationship ends, hard feelings may arise, and some people have an especially difficult time moving forward. For example, those who have kids and cannot agree on how custody should be divided or those who have an ex who is very bitter about any number of issues may have an especially difficult time during the divorce process. In some instances, someone’s ex may even begin to threaten them.

These threats may be financial in nature, such as making claims that they will shatter their former partner’s finances due to alimony, child support or property division. Or, the threats may involve children, such as claims that they will not be able to see their child again. In some cases, threats may even become violent, and someone may threaten their ex’s life. People may threaten to tarnish their former spouse’s reputation among friends and family members or over the internet, and there are other hardships that people have to struggle with in this regard.

In the digital age, it has never been easier to threaten others and make serious claims about another person (even if these claims are untrue). Many people have had to work through these challenges during and after their divorce, and it is important to defend yourself if you are facing these problems. If you believe that your ex has broken the law or that their behavior could impact a custody dispute, it is imperative to bring attention to their behavior from a legal perspective and protect your rights.
