How To Be a Good Client

“Does it really matter if I am a good client?” I think it really helps you help yourself if you are a good client. Attorneys will do the work, care about your case, and want to have a positive outcome. But what changes if you are a good client? The attorney is more enthusiastic, more … Continue reading How To Be a Good Client

School is Out!

Very soon, school will be out in the valley. That sounds like a fun time unless you are worried about how to split time with your former spouse. Many families choose an option that gives each parent up to 2 weeks or even a month of uninterrupted family kid time without seeing the other parent. … Continue reading School is Out!

Lawyers Should Not Be Used Car Sales People

The sad truth is that some attorneys can make divorces worse. You will know those attorneys when you meet them. Those used car sales attorneys do not want to educate you about the process and they do not want you to make your own decisions. They are rude to other counsel and they act like … Continue reading Lawyers Should Not Be Used Car Sales People

Brad and Angelina Settled Custody

I am sure that Brad and Angelina never read my blogs but they did listen. They have settled all their issues related to their children without a trial. That is so good for them and the kids. I doubt whether the agreement is public, hopefully it is private as it should be. They each had … Continue reading Brad and Angelina Settled Custody

Brad and Angelina and Jackie O.

You would think that money gave you some sense…especially in a divorce. It really does not matter if both work in an office orĀ are movie stars…some people just do not put their children first. There is no good reason that a stranger, a judge appointed to hear your case, should decide the fate and parenting … Continue reading Brad and Angelina and Jackie O.

What About School?

You and your former spouse cannot agree where your child is going to go to school. One of you wants to jump into court and get this resolved. No no no. This is no longer happening and will not work that way with the court. I once had a judge ask parents in a courtroom, … Continue reading What About School?

Summertime

Are you sharing your children with their other parent this summer? Would you like to make things go smoothly? Just be polite and kind. Do unto others as you would like them to treat you. What does that mean? When you decide to take the kids to the beach, let their other parent know where … Continue reading Summertime

School’s Out

Yeah, the kids are out of school and the summer is here. The kids are really excited and the parents are not quite as excited. If you share your children with their other parent, you might be even less excited. How do you share the kids over the summer? Most likely, you already have a … Continue reading School’s Out

Mothers Leaving Abuse

If you are a mother, it is because you have kids. I have an observation to make about mother’s who go through divorce and the thoughts about children. Sometimes mothers get divorced for reasons that are unrelated to the husband/father’s behavior or love toward his children. In those families, it makes sense to share responsibilities … Continue reading Mothers Leaving Abuse
