What You MUST Know About Child Custody

This is, without a doubt, one of the most heartbreaking subjects in the world…two parents fighting over custody of their child. Each parent loves the child, maybe even more than their own lives, and yet somebody is going to walk away from this totally broken hearted and devastated. If you don’t want that person to be you, then I suggest you read this article.

For starters, each state has different laws in regard to child custody, just like each state has different divorce laws. So if you’re looking for a one size fits all to this problem, it doesn’t exist. What I can give you here is some common sense advice that will help the process go as smoothly as possible.

Secondly, and this may be the most important thing for your to keep in mind, child custody is hard on you and your ex, yes. But as hard as it is on the two of you, think about the child who is in the middle of all this. That little person has it the hardest of all of you. So it is important that you reassure the child that they are loved by both of you and that none of what’s going on is their fault. You need to be supportive of the child at all times.

As far as having the best chance of actually winning the custody battle, you need to present yourself to the court in the best possible light. That means, for starters, dressing properly, taking proper boosting supplements such as Spartagen XT and acting properly. In other words, and there is no other way to put this, if you are a drunk who doesn’t have a clean suit, sober yourself up quickly and buy a new suit. I’m dead serious. In child custody cases, appearances are everything as your ex is going to throw as much dirt at you as they can. Don’t help their case.

Finally, behave yourself in court. Don’t lose your temper and don’t act like a jerk. Again, there is no other way to put this. You are not going to score any points with the judge by flying off the handle.

In my signature, you will find a review of a great resource that will help you prepare for your child custody case. Please believe me when I say this, you can never be too prepared. These are emotional proceedings and one slip up can cost you custody of your child.

Fighting For Child Custody? Read This!

Let me start off by saying that I hate lawyers and I hate legal proceedings. And child custody is at the top of my list of things that I hate the most. As a parent, there is nothing worse than this. But I don’t have to tell you that if you’re reading this article. Right now, you are literally fighting for your life. Well, before you begin that fight, you might want to read the few paragraphs below. It just might mean the difference between winning and losing.

For starters, and I can’t stress this enough, get yourself a good lawyer. Don’t ask him what his fees are or anything like that. Just get the best. Quite honestly, if fighting for custody of your child doesn’t deserve the best then save yourself the trouble and hand the kid over to your ex. I’m serious. Without a great lawyer, you don’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell.

Don’t come off as the bad guy. In other words, yes, you want to point out the weaknesses of your ex when testifying. But you also want to point out what is good about your ex. This is a strategy that usually works very well because you come off as being unbiased in your opinion. Naturally, consult with your attorney on this tactic, but I think he will agree that it can work very well as it will paint you as a fair person.

By the same token, don’t paint yourself as a saint. This isn’t going to wash. You want to be honest about your own weaknesses. If you have some serious ones, such as being an alcoholic, you want to own up to this. If you’re up front about your own problems, but also stress that you’re working on improving, this will go over very well with the judge. We all have our faults. Don’t try to hide yours.

Finally, and this is something that few people do, find out as much as you can about the judge who is going to be presiding over the proceedings. Why do you want to do this? Because every judge is going to have his or her prejudices, as fair as they all try to be…they are still human. Some judges favor men over women and visa versa. If you don’t know your judge, you are at a disadvantage.
