Addressing defamation during the divorce process

by | Feb 18, 2020 | Family Law For Fathers

When it comes to the divorce process, there are a lot of different issues for fathers to consider. Sometimes, people have an especially difficult divorce due to their former spouse’s behavior, whether they threaten to cut off contact with children or bring up various financial concerns. However, some people falsely accuse their former partner of wrongdoing when they are getting a divorce and there are different reasons for this behavior. Sometimes, someone accuses their ex of abuse in order to win a custody battle. In other instances, someone simply wants revenge. Either way, it is imperative for people to address defamation during the divorce process.

Unfortunately, defamation often has a significant impact on one’s life. Those falsely accused of wrongdoing frequently encounter problems in their career, whether their position is cut or they cannot find work. Many people also become overwhelmed by stress and suffer major damage to their reputation that is irreparable, in some instances. Moreover, false allegations sometimes impact the outcome of a child custody dispute and other issues related to a divorce, which is why it is so imperative to address these false claims right away and in an appropriate manner.

Every divorce is different and false allegations of wrongdoing surface for different reasons. Our law office understands the intense pressure that many fathers have when they are in this position and we realize that many feel helpless. However, by taking the correct approach to such challenges, more favorable outcomes are within reach for many people. Explore our website to go over more on addressing divorce-related matters.
