The divorce process can be relatively straightforward for some couples, with both parties respecting each other and working together to find an outcome that is in everyone’s best interests. In other cases, it can be very difficult, not only when finances are taken into consideration but also in terms of child custody, emotions and many other facets of one’s life. Sadly, some people do everything they can to undermine their ex during the divorce process, whether they spread false rumors or even try to falsely accuse their former partner of domestic violence, for example. 

Someone may try to make life hard for their ex for a multitude of reasons. They may simply want to get revenge and bring the other person down because they are upset about the marriage ending. Or, they may have other motives. For example, they may be determined to win a custody battle and do everything in their power to prevent their former spouse from being able to spend time with their kids. This can be especially heartbreaking and stressful. 

If your ex is not being fair during your divorce, you should not allow your rights to be trampled on. It is pivotal to take a firm stance and do what you can to defend your interests. Many people feel overwhelmed by divorce and they may think that they are unable to do anything about their circumstances. However, multiple legal strategies may be on the table and some people can protect their future (and their kids) by taking the time to approach these tough matters head-on.
