Would there be a time in the Financial proceedings where abusive messages relating directly to the financial settlement would be relevant? My partner who is the respondent in a case has had several absuive messages (plus some nasty social media posts) from his ex and her friend, indicating that her plan is to make sure he gets nothing in the divorce settlement. Would that be evidence to support that his ex isn't looking for a fair settlement, but is just being vindictive? If so, when and how could that be included in the proceedings?
If the messages constitute harassment, a word could be had with the police.
I think the financial proceedings would only be affected if the messages showed evidence of things like dissipation of assets or any deliberate act designed to defeat a financial claim.
At the end of the day, if she isn't going to play nicely and mediation doesn't help, it may help to apply to the courts and have a judge deal with her.
Before that it would probably help both parties to do some homework on how financial settlement works. At the end of the day it is needs that are considered first - for housing and income, now and in the future.
