- Sole Custody Consdierations
Before you pursue sole custody of your children there are many
things to consider:
- Be absolutely certain that you want to be the sole
- Be absolutely certain your children want to live with you.
- Be absolutely certain you are at the very least a nurturing parent.
- Do not represent yourself unless you have no economic alternative choice.
- Retain a skilled honest lawyer. Interview two or three experienced lawyers. Men must
consider carefully when retaining women lawyers.
- When committing to the custody case be certain that you commit to underwriting the
capital for the case; the ensuing emotional aggravation; and can relate to a judicial
system that is often insensitive, and procrastinating.
- With your attorney, develop a game plan that will be the theory of your custody case.
- Decide if your state permits you to select which court to initiate your custody case.
The venue you select is important.
- Be certain that you are emotionally prepared for damaging testimony about your intimate
personal life and that of your extended family; especially if false.
- Be able to reveal the most lurid intimacies of the mother of your children, especially
drugs, alcohol, sexual, neglect, smoking, child abuse; and false accusations or arrests of
your conduct to the authorities; kidnapping and improper interference with your potential
- Keep a custody diary' documents, records and witness address lists to support your game
plan for custody.
- Where your child's mother initiates false accusations that results in police and/or
civil/criminal penalties against you; be certain that you institute where possible a civil
suit apart from the custody proceeding for any domestic tort; defamation; abuse of
process, or filing a false claim that results in damage.
- Develop a parenting plan that spells out who will care for your children while you are
away from home.
- Produce the extended family and friends that will assist your parenting.
- Request court appointed forensic expert, and obtain court permission to hire your own
experts for psychiatric and psychological evaluations.
- Request home inspections.
- Do not compromise/settle your custody proceeding before knowing the full nature of the
legal terms that are used in the documents.
- Do not call your child as a witness. Rather request the court to interview the
"child in camera" and on the record.
- Before taping conversations, discuss eavesdropping laws with your lawyer.
- Where helpful, ask for a Law Guardian to represent your child.
