FAMILY LAW TALKING POINTS
Helping you overcome domestic struggles...
Children in court
Do not exploit/use your children to support your legal claim: To that end,
(i) do not bring your children to court if their presence isn't legally compelled (i.e., subpoenaed), or otherwise necessary to further a legal --and prudently considered-- claim;
(ii) do not coach your children to misrepresent things; and
iii) do not mistake your child's best interest with "besting" the other parent: the "best interest" legal burden was crafted to be responsive to children's needs, not to supply an effort to "burden" or undermine the other parent.
