A: If the divorce proceedings are still pending, these issues can be addressed in the divorce case and brought to the attention of the family court judge who has the power to sanction and or restrain the other party for any undue abuse in the proceedings. However, each party has the right to argue that the other is an unfit parent etc.., and make their case so long as they have a good faith basis to allege what they allege. You should consider a good family lawyer if you don't have one already to help you deal with these issue and help you confront/defeat the above accusations. The information provided here is not intended as a legal advice and is very general and may or may not fit the questioner's situation. Consult with a divorce lawyer.
