Idle threat or reality?
What is the name of your state? MI
Soon to be ex and I are going through bitter divorce/custody situation. Married 5 years, together 10. About a month ago we had a heated argument about who knows what. I was EXTREMELY upset (he had an affair, went to counseling, still ended up here, etc...) and made some offhand comment about hating my life, being better off dead or something to that effect. Honestly, I don't remember my exact words or the nature of the argument; but he does.
Now that we are trying to "work out" custody he says he is going to use thatstatement to take my kids. He says it shows I'm suicidal and therefore unfit. PLEASE someone tell me that this is legally a bunch of BS?! Can a stupid comment made in the heat of an argument actually be used against me?
