Dirty Divorce Tactics
There are a number of dirty divorce tactics that spouses often use during a divorce. In California, divorcing couples should be well aware that while dirty divorce tactics may seem like a good idea, the truth of the matter is that dirty divorce tactics rarely give the perpetrator any advantage and almost always lead to animosity and can be especially devastating to your children! Quite often, dirty divorce tactics are unplanned during the marriage, but are used during a divorce and even provoked by an attorney who claims to be acting in their client’s best interest. This is especially true for spouses who are unaware of the different under-handed dirty divorce tactics that can be used against them! Don’t fall into the trap of using these tactics that could trick you out of your home, place a strain on your income, and decrease quality time you spend with your children.
Your divorce will be difficult enough and your focus should be to getting on with your life instead of joining in the mud slinging and under handed legalities of a scorned spouse. The only way to avoid becoming mired in a nasty divorce is to know to expect and how to counteract any effects. In the long-run, you’ll not only be thankful that you did not stoop to the level of a immoral or ruthless spouse but you children will respect you for maintaining a position of respect for the marriage.
Your California In-Laws and Close Friends
One of the more popular dirty divorce tactics is to get those who were once very close to you to testify against you. In-laws and friends can unwittingly play a big role promoting dirty divorce tactics. As examples, consider this:
- Claim you’re an unfit parent who is unable to care for the children because you often leave them in the care of others or are never available when your children need you;
- Offer evidence of neglect by claiming that you were unavailable during an emergency which involved one of your children;
- Claim that your children’s environment is not safe because you have poor housekeeping habits or do not keep the children clean. Should your spouse attempt to use this tactic, you must have witness, preferable your parents or close friends, who are willing to testify on your behalf.
Another of the more popular dirty divorce tactics is to hide assets. A spouse will try to avoid paying spousal or child support by hiding assets and other income they are receiving without your knowledge. You make it much easier for your spouse to deceive you during the divorce by not knowing the details of your marital finances before the divorce. You should have an active role in money management, financial investments, income, and your liabilities (the bills you owe). Having this information will make it difficult for your spouse to claim less income when calculating spousal and child support. If you do not have ready access to financial documents, you should make copies for your reference.
