High conflict divorce can devastate individuals, children and families. Nevertheless, it still happens every single day, in Howard County and throughout the State of Maryland.
Less than scrupulous attorneys used to create a dynamic of advising their clients to begin a divorce by filing for a protective order, filing criminal charges and filing for divorce simultaneously to place the other spouse at such a disadvantage that the spouse could never bounce back from it.
Judges have clearly gotten wise to this and many other tactics, and they tend to punish the spouse using the above strategy.
