Former senator's wife faces tough custody battle ahead

A former senator's wife is seeking divorce from him, while he contends that she presents a danger to their children after she allegedly wielded a shotgun during a domestic conflict not even a month ago, on Sept. 30, 2017. While the details of the story remain murky, the incident serves as a strong reminder that things can get exceptionally complicated when parents with complex or significant assets face the prospect of divorce.

The former senator contends that his wife poses a threat to herself and their children, and he is seeking full custody. However, attorneys representing the wife claim that the entire incident is fabricated to maintain control of the divorce and secure custody of the children. Regardless of the truth of the matter, the conflict clearly demonstrates the complexities of divorce when stakes get high.

If you face a divorce as a parent, you must take great care to protect yourself against false allegations that may seriously affect your case. Similarly, you must keep in mind that everything you do in this season, whether it is technically illegal or not, may influence the way that a judge perceives your fitness as a parent or liability to your children. Do not wait for the rug to get pulled out from under you to seek out strong legal guidance from an attorney who understands how to navigate divorce in New York.

You can begin protecting your rights and building your divorce strategy by reaching out to a divorce attorney. Professional legal counsel helps you understand all the issues at stake and prepares you for the difficult season ahead, walking with you to keep your rights and priorities secure.
