Sanctions for Bad Faith Behavior or Tactics during Divorce Proceedings 1

Posted by Ramona Kennedy | Apr 22, 2019 | 0 Comments

Going through a divorce is bad enough on its own. Usually the reason for the divorce is something negative such as infidelity. One party usually has to move out of the home and find somewhere else to live. Lawmakers in California know how stressful a time this is for couples. Lawmakers in California also realized that sometimes, one party would sometimes do things on purpose to make things difficult on the other party. Sometimes they would do this with the help of their attorney. To keep parties from wasting each other's time, or causing unnecessary delays, law makers in California passed laws that allowed the court to place sanctions on parties who showed bad faith behavior or used bad tactics during divorce proceedings.

If you feel that your soon to be ex-spouse is engaging in frivolous, bad faith, or bad tactics during your divorce process, it is a good idea to keep a log of all the bad things they do. This way, during the divorce hearing, you can submit your proof and have the court decide if your spouse is deserving of sanctions. The better your documentation, the better your evidence will look when you submit it. You should tell your divorce attorney that you feel like you are being harassed and he or she should help you document each incident.

If it comes to light that the divorce attorney of your soon to be ex-spouse was helping him or her, then the attorney may also be subject to sanctions. Again, it is important to document each incident to show a pattern of harassment. Keep a running log of every incident, exchange your have with your spouse or your spouse's attorney, and make sure you keep a copy of any document that is sent to you from them.

If you are going through a divorce, or feel like it's time to file for divorce, hiring a knowledgeable and experienced divorce attorney can help you through this difficult process.
