Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good afternoon. I definitely understand why this is upsetting, but based on your description, I'm not clear on why your ex-wife could possibly win anything. Anyone can sue anyone for anything, but that doesn't mean that there's a legal foundation for sustaining the suit. I could sue you for being extraordinarily handsome, but I wouldn't win and would probably get reported to the state bar for bringing a frivolous lawsuit. Do you have any reason to believe that the ex wife has a leg to stand on?
jAs it relates to the children that you share with the ex-wife, your new wife can be brought into your existing case. If, for example, your wife was a danger to your kids, your ex-wife would certainly have grounds to go to court in your custody case and request an order that you not allow the kids to be around your wife. That's not to say that the court will find in your ex-wife's favor, but it's a custody issue and can be heard.You said that the ex-wife is attacking your wife's business in motions, but it's not at all clear to me how those attacks relate to your custody issues or any sort of relief that the court can grant. Honestly, if your ex-wife wants to make irrelevant accusations, it will just make her look bad in your custody matter. To be straightforward, it sounds like your ex-wife is trying to get under your skin, and is succeeding a little bit. She can make whatever accusations she feel is relevant, but the court ultimately decides whether there needs to be a change in custody. She has a right to be heard, but she doesn't have a right to win.
