LEARN WITH A LAWYER - DON'T "USE" YOUR CHILD TO ADVANCE YOUR GOALS IN A FAMILY LAW CASE.
Learn that there is no winning or losing when it comes to a child custody case. Children are not something to win, even though it may feel that way if you are having on going custody litigation. Children are not pawn’s either do not use them to your benefit to attain more parenting time or decrease in child support. If you sense that your child is struggling during the divorce due to actions of the other parent or actions of yourself, make sure that you seek emotional help for them. Get them into therapy, talk to a school counselor, make sure that they are getting the help they need, especially if the other parent is treating them like a pawn or parental alienation is occurring in the divorce.
