If one spouse must handle a criminal matter while a divorce is proceeding, the best course of action is to request a stay in family court. Any statements made in family court can be used against the speaker in criminal court, and there is thus a real risk of a statement made in family court being taken out of context and becoming detrimental during the criminal court proceeding. The best course of action is to resolve the criminal matter before the family court matter can begin.
