My soon to be ex husband is spreading the idea that I am

Customer Question

My soon to be ex husband is spreading the idea that I am crazy, I'm guessing to try and move for custody of our children. I am, in fact seeing a therapist for past abuse, and the stress my spouse has inflicted for many issues. I am assuming that he would have burden of proof to prove that I am clinically insane as he's been telling people? And if so, would he also be required to prove that he isn't mentally ill as well?
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: I'm in Los Angeles, California
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: No, I'm trying to be proactive and gather defensive action for anything that comes my way.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Not that I can think of at the moment

He doesn't have to prove it, but you would. This type of conduct is fairly typical in a messy divorce situation. You can ask for a psychological evaluation of him especially since children are involved in the case.
