Psychological Issues During Divorce

Yolo County Divorce Attorney knows how to deal with Mental Health Issues during the Divorce Process

Divorce is a very emotionally challenging time for most people. But when psychological matters are involved,  the California Divorce process can become even more and more challenging with a whole other set of stress factors. At JB Dath Law we are experienced and qualified to handle complex issues arising during marital dissolution. We have many years of experience in successfully solving these complex issues which often occur when one of the Divorcing parties has a history of psychological problems. We are dedicated to getting positive results by addressing these issues when they arise.

“My Spouse Has A Mental Health Issue”

At JB Dath Law, we hear from our clients that Psychological issues are often the main concern in custody or visitation disputes. A spouse who becomes aggressive and angry may focus more on revenge than resolution, including using the children to punish the other parent and in worse case scenerios, taking active steps to alienate the other parent. This abusive spouse may engage in unnecessary litigation to squander the other spouse’s financial resources and we find that often the psych- issues can interfere with reaching a parenting plan agreement. This can make litigation extremely stressful for the divorcing parties. At JB Dath Law, we address psychological issues when they arise – such as:

  • Mental Health issues
  • Depression
  • Substance Abuse
  • Domestic Violence
  • Parental alienation

Often the use of mental health professionals are utilized through these complicated divorce transitions. As these Psychological custody issues during divorce become more frequent, we are collaborating with more mental health professionals (mediators, evaluators, co-parenting coordinators) to assist our clients through this process. With help, it is our only hope that the divorcing couple can learn to co-parent so that their children can have a healthy relationship with both parents.

Consult with us about all your concerns during the Divorce Process. We offer free consultations at either of offices (Sacramento & Davis) Call today to schedule your case analysis.

Client Testimonials

"I would recommend JB Dath Law to anyone expecting results. Jonathan took on my case in the middle of a custody hearing, and completely turned around the outcome of my case. With the fate of the custody of my son on the line, he worked around the clock to bring himself up to speed on my trial, and came into the courtroom ready to go. Not only did he stop things from spiraling out of control, but he ended up securing me full physical and legal custody of my child. He continues to provide top notch services, and his knowledge of the courts and the systems is second to none in Yolo County. The only complaint I have is that I didn't retain his services from day one!"


"If you are looking for strong, analytical support in handling complicated matters pertaining to divorce, I highly recommend you add Jonathan Dath to your team.
