What Do I Do When My Spouse Starts Fights In Front of the Kids?

Dear Attorneys,

I have already filed for divorce, but my spouse wants to stay married. She keeps bringing up the divorce, and fighting with me in front of the kids. What do I do?

Sincerely,

Stressed Dad

 

Dear Stressed,

We’re sorry to hear that your spouse has reacted this way, and isn’t “reigning it in” in front of your children. Getting a divorce, especially while you are still living under the same roof, can be extremely stressful.

It’s not uncommon for one spouse to want to delay or stall the divorce.  However, in Connecticut, while a party can file a motion for conciliation (or reconciliation), they cannot unilaterally stop the divorce process. If your spouse tries to fight tooth and nail on every issue, just turn to your attorney for advice, and do not engage.  It is best to continue to remain calm and reasonable. If the situation really gets out of hand, you can file motions with the court. Worst case scenario is that you have to go to court to address your concerns. The best case scenario is that your spouse starts to understand what is going on, you can avoid court, and have simply created a paper trail.
