Filing for divorce from a chronic liar

On Behalf of | Jul 15, 2019 | Divorce |

There are countless reasons why marriages fall apart, but some can be especially tricky. For example, those who live with a serial liar may no longer be able to stay in the relationship. Perhaps they caught their partner having an affair, and their spouse swore up and down that they would never carry out the behavior again (only for them to be caught again in the future). Chronic liars may be deceitful in many ways and for various reasons. However, it can be very toxic to live with someone who exhibits this behavior and our law firm completely realizes why people in this position sometimes decide that enough is enough.

If you are planning to file for a divorce from a compulsive liar, there are a number of factors you should keep in mind. First, you should realize that it is very possible that they will lie to you before, during and after the divorce. They may lie about any number of things, from issues involving the custody of your children to financial matters and even emotional concerns. They may threaten you or someone else, and they may try to play mind games. Sometimes, liars can be very skilled at their deceit, and they may even be able to persuade a courtroom (especially if the other party is not prepared).

If you are determined to end your marriage, you should have a very good understanding of your different legal options. It is important to be prepared for anything and also to defend yourself (especially if false allegations arise, for example).
