Those of us who practice divorce and family law in California for a living frequently hear our clients complain that their spouses have made one sort of threat or another... anything from "you'll never see the kids again" to "I'll make sure this divorce bankrupts you," and so on.

Thanks to San Diego family law attorney Paul Staley for his take on these threats, which he calls "urban legends" because they are frequently believed but mostly not true. I thought I'd share them here with readers of my blog because it is important to understand that these threats are, well... just threats. Keep in mind that there is a big difference between what your spouse says and what the Judge says. And guess which one is more important?
