Good Afternoon

How old is your daughter?

Expert:  Daniel replied 11 months ago.

Hello
Unless the defaming statements were on printed media / television then defamation proceedings would not be worth it commercially.

It is extremely unfortunate that the mother is suggesting such things and it actually will work against her in family court as she is not promoting to the child that you are a good father.

I suggest drafting an affidavit outlining such things, but more so, speak about the positives of your attributes to provide for your child.

I know the above may not be what you want to hear, but it is best way to deal with it
