Not sure what to do. My stepdaughter is going through a custody of children battle with her ex. Up until now, I’ve stayed out of it thinking it’s the best thing to do, but this changed after reading an affidavit that contained absurd accusations filed by her ex, stating he has observed members her family including myself, my wife and my other stepdaughter being verbally aggressive, and he states at one point, he observed me chasing my wife through the house with a loaded shotgun! I don’t own any firearms, have no criminal record nor have any record of violence and I'm not an aggressive person, and although we haven’t spoken for some time (because we live thousands of klm apart), we always got on quite well. So should I be seeking legal advice on the grounds of defamation? Thanks in advance for any help. Regards.
