Bullying during a divorce in Pennsylvania

A divorce bully is someone who has started bullying their spouse during a divorce but did not exhibit these behaviors during a marriage. Ending a marriage is a difficult enough proceeding without additional stress from a spouse bent on antagonization, so it's important to understand how to deal with these behaviors.

One of the first things that a person dealing with a bullying spouse should do is to draw clear lines of what is and is not acceptable. In some cases, individuals may bully people because they are aware that the person they are targeting will not stand up for themselves. Additionally, it will be harder for a bully to argue they weren't doing anything wrong when behavior is marked as unacceptable.

Bullying does not always take place in public, and many perpetrators do not want an audience to see what they are doing. Therefore, it may be a good idea to keep a record, even if it is just written, of all incidents of bullying. This record can help someone keep their facts straight when it comes time to discuss their spouse's actions.

When facing the end of a marriage, especially when dealing with a difficult spouse, it is important for people to know their rights and how the legal system makes determinations in a divorce. People may lose out on property that they have a right to during asset division if they speed through the process in an attempt to get their spouse to leave them alone. A lawyer could be of assistance to a person in this position by handling the negotiations for a fair and comprehensive settlement agreement.
