Using Wife’s Behavior To Gain Child Custody

advice on divorceQuestion:

I’m looking for advice on divorce to help formulate a legal strategy to enhance my child custody case.

My wife has committed acts of domestic violence against me that have been documented with pictures of scratches and 911 emergency calls.

She is also attending therapy and counseling for depression.

Can these be used as evidence to support my case for child custody?


This answer only includes general divorce help for men since I am only licensed to practice in Oklahoma and am thus unable to provide advice on child custody laws in your state.

Any evidence which shows that your wife has committed acts of domestic violence against you, your children, or another individual can be used to gain an advantage in litigation. If you’re dealing with child custody issues, this sort of evidence can be especially helpful.

Information found in pictures and reports can be used to show that it is not in your children’s best interests to be with your wife.

You can also subpoena information from your therapists and counselors to discover any diagnoses, medications, or the concerns of the mental health professionals treating her.
