My Former Spouse Is Emotionally Abusive To Our Kids When They Visit. What Do I Do?

Emotional abuse can be as damaging to a child’s self image as it is difficult to substantiate.

To persuade a court that there are problems with the way your former spouse is interacting with your children, you should make efforts to document a pattern of inappropriate or hurtful comments, actions, and other troubling behaviors over time.

A single incident or comment won’t be enough, but when it becomes clear that your former spouse is taking out their issues or frustrations on your children, it may be necessary for a judge to curtail those behaviors.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino understand the intricacies of custody matters and the importance of putting your kids first.
