Vengeful spouse? Don’t go through divorce alone

by | Jun 14, 2019 | Family Law

You and your spouse were always the best of friends, but in the last few months, you’ve noticed changes. Now, out of the blue, he’s seeking a divorce. You don’t know why, and frankly, you don’t care why. All you know is that they’re being unreasonable and that you’re concerned that they’re going to harm you in every possible way.

Sometimes, people begin to show their true colors during a divorce. They may send nasty emails or attack you over texts. They may be verbally abusive or do all they can to ruin your relationships with friends you share. It’s hard, but you don’t have to go through it alone.

Your divorce attorney knows how to handle situations like this and can help you get through it. Sometimes, negotiating isn’t a possibility, but litigation can still help you get what you need, and some of what you want, out of your divorce.

What kind of evidence do you need for court?

If your spouse is being difficult on purpose, then start collecting evidence. Collect disparaging emails or vicious text messages. Showing the court their intention to hurt you psychologically and to intimidate you will do nothing but help your case.

Your attorney will help you build a case against your spouse and show the divorce court why you want certain assets and benefits from your marriage following your divorce. If you want spousal support or other benefits, you can seek those, too. Our site has more on what to do if your spouse is being unreasonable or harmful during your divorce.
