My son and his ex wife are recently divorced. There is a lot

Resolved Question:

My son and his ex wife are recently divorced. There is a lot of bitterness between them.
she had breast cancer some 6 years ago, at that time they were unhappy together and
he went and had an affair. She has been approached (some how or other) to give
the story of my son having an affair whilst she had breast cancer (he was still very
attentive whilst she was ill - although I think it was not correct and I do not condone this)
The paper is a daily paper and if he or she is mentioned by name and as he is
a professional man it could destroy/damage him. Could he take out an injunction against the writer, or what steps should he take. thankyou

Hi Clare

I do not think it will be inaccurately incorrect (although this is only guess work) but of course there is various sides to this sort of story, and my ex daughter in law is a very bitter person - I would like to ensure she cannot go further with insinuations etc, and to advise my son if possible where to go with this.

My telephone number is *****(###) ###-####if poss.

many thanks

Hi Clare

Not sure if you received my response.

I do not think it will be inaccurately incorrect (although this is only guesswork), but of course here is various sides to this sort of story

as in any divorce. My ex-daughter-in-law is a very bitter

person. I would like to ensure she cannot go further with insuations etc

and to advise my son if possible where to go with this.

I have a landline number *********** - many thanks

Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hi Claire
no mediation taken over this

I just wish to know what action my son may need to take

thank you

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
Hi
The news is not good.
If the article will be based on fact then it can be published and your son is not going to be able to prevent it.
His best option is to appeal to her love for the children - who WILL be damaged by this very public dissection of their home life.
I am sorry - I know that this is not what you wish to hear - but sadly no matter what job he could only stop this is it was not true.
Please ask if you need further details
