2 keys to better outcomes > Communication & Preparedness
Let's imagine you are in court.
Considering what’s at stake in family court, preparation raises the odds of success. If you agree, then place high priority on educating yourself…about the court, a few of its procedural rules, the participants-judges, evaluators, psychologist, court clerks, lawyers and a bit about the law itself. We can help. It's what we do.
It made all the difference for many, including myself. Ask me how! Tel 310-375-0440.
A word on effective communications. Can you describe your parenting style? Do you know how its perceived by others when you call your child’s other parent your “Ex”? How can you know how they receive that? Sometimes we learn the hard way.
How do you feel about corporal punishment? If you were asked by the judge what exactly it is that you want, could you summarize it in 25 seconds or less? We'll prepare you.
As a Parent Educator and Coach, and from battle scars in court, I lived it and witnessed it for over fourteen years. I see the successes and failures tied directly to, among other things- communications and preparedness. Parents walk into an OSC (Order To Show Cause Hearing), into a custody evaluation or to other proceedings with no less than their children’s upbringing hanging in the balance, with our futures immensely impacted by the outcome. Sadly, many will enter the court with that eyes-glazed, deer-in-the-headlights look that reveals how lost they are. Many will just wing it, reacting to what takes place - implemented by those better prepared.
Do not wing it! Fortune favors the prepared, and the brave. ♣ It often favors the participant with a very good attorney too. Resources are here. If children are in the picture, create a parenting plan. Its part of our service. we can help you.
In the words of George Bernard Shaw: “The greatest problem in communication is the illusion that it has been accomplished”. How effective are your words? Now don’t kid to yourself. Find outside perspective for a more truthful answer and then please act on it. The key word here is ACT. Call me now with any questions.
Please accept our very best to you and yours for peace and preparedness in this year of opportunity and change.
