Considering this, it is perhaps not surprising that Orange County divorce proceedings in courts are one of the most emotionally charged events. With emotions running high, divorce proceedings throw up sparks and verbal tirades by the spouses against each other on almost daily basis. One of the reasons for it is the sense of lack of fulfillment or guilt of the relation’s failure. Most spouses seem to want to transfer the guilt upon the other’s shoulders.

When the emotions run so high, there are several instances in divorces where one of the spouse or even both in a few cases threaten the other with verbal threats. Here is a list of a few of those threats and the importance and ultimate uselessness of such threats if any.

Do As I Say Or You Won’t Get A Dime!

This one of the most common threats that is leveled by dominant spouses against the other spouse who has been dependent on the other for support throughout the relation. At times spouse that have enjoyed authority and control all their life get stifled by the sudden change in their life in the shape of a divorce without their go ahead. In such cases, spouses tend to level such threats to try and regain control and exercise their authority over the other spouse. This threat though is simply a baseless one.
