3 THINGS to ASK When NEGOTIATING A PARENTING PLAN
 
05:59
http://commandthecourtroom.com These are 3 things parents need to address when negotiating & creating a parenting time plan. It is important that you address these things with the other parent when negotiating & drafting a parenting plan. 1. Do you want sole custody or joint custody Custody or Legal Decision Making means your & the other parent's ability to make major decisions about the lives of your children. Decisions such as medicine, education, and personal care decisions. So you need to think about if you want sole or joint custody. Once you've hammered that out, you need to start thinking about what parenting time plan you're going to be asking the other party to share with you. There are lots of different parenting plans out there. You really should be thinking about the best interest of your kids and coming up with a plan for them so some people have a week on we got planned other people have one parent gets every other weekend so I would encourage you to do your research. Look at websites & figure out what plan works best for the kids & map it out with begin times and end times. 2. Planning Holidays Once you have in your mind whatever parenting plan that you're going to go for the next thing to do is to move onto holidays. What are you going to be requesting for different holidays. You & the other parent may not celebrate the same holidays that most other people do. For example not everybody celebrates Christmas or Easter. It’s important to define what each holiday is going to be in terms of start times and end times because really as I talked about in the video last week (https://youtu.be/9Obx_8CyBJg) that’s where people get into conflict especially around this time of year, Christmas & New Years. If you don't set start and end times it really could lead to a major incident that creates & not so great memory for the kids. 3. Vacations You also want to think about vacation parenting time. As your kids get to be school-age they're going to be getting vacation like summer vacation in most cases. Some kids go to school year round but do you want you and the other parent to have the ability to take a week or two with the kids and go out of state or take a trip to Disneyland. So it is super important for you to include this into your parenting plan & propose to the other park party what specific vacation schedule you're asking for. You also should be putting what notification schedule you want, in other words how far in advance do each of you need to let the other parent know if you're going to be taking a vacation & what sorts of information do you want to have before your child goes on vacation with the other parent. And are you willing to provide that same information. If you're going into the courtroom you really need to have outlined these things for the court with specificity. The more specific you are the better you and the other parent are going to be in the future. Especially if it dispute comes up because then you can go right to the parenting plan & look at it. If it's not in the parenting plan then you're going to probably find yourself in custody court.

Petition to Modify Custody or Parenting Time - Avoid This Mistake!
 
04:28
http://commandthecourtroom.com An example of a petition to modify custody or parenting time gone wrong. A recently consulted with a potential client and this potential client had gotten a document prepared for him. He did this to help him in preparing a petition to modify custody and parenting time with his children. What ended up happening though was when the judge took a look at the client'w petition to modify the document prepared had prepared the judge found that that petition did not set forth a legal reason for custody to be modified. As a result the judge just dismissed the case and didn't even give the client a potential hearing. It doesn't happen a lot but more and more judges are doing it because they are so overwhelmed with cases and if they don't find that the person establishes the bare necessity of what they need to in their pleading, in their motion, the judge may dismiss the case. So this is a tip that I gained and want to share with you form that experience. When you are writing or preparing a petition to modify or any kind of petition, the facts of your case are very very important. You have to lay those facts out there. The judge has to understand why your case is different from all the other cases he or she is handling. The judge has to understand if you are seeking a change in custody, why a change might be warranted. For example in Arizona in order to modify custody or parenting time you have to show the judge that there's been a substantial and continuing change in circumstances. It's not enough to just say in the motion that you're preparing this, you have to set forth the reason why there's been a substantial and continuing change in circumstances. So I'm guessing that whatever state or country that you're in, if you want to change something with the court, you're going to have to tell the court why it should be changed. This is where the facts become very important. You say why. For example you say maybe that it's been 5 years since the original custody and parenting plan was entered. So time has passed but keep in mind that time alone is not going to do it. You may add on for example that your child is doing differently that and she was before. Recently there has been a decline in grades or that the school is closing down. Maybe you've gotten remarried or in a new relationship. Maybe the child has new siblings or step siblings. There are a lot of reasons why a case may be changed and you have to set those forth. You have to tell the judge why you are requesting the change. Details matter. Facts matter. And if you don't lay it out there, you could end up in the same boat as the potential client I met with.

Parenting Time Agreement & Visitation Schedule
 
03:36
http://www.commandthecourtroom.com Train your mind to think & your mouth to speak when you go into court for your child custody decision making or parenting time hearing.* Please read the Disclaimer below: *This video recording is for educational purposes only and should not be considered as the rendering of legal advice. The viewing of this recording does not create an attorney-client relationship. An attorney-client relationship is only formed when you have signed an engagement agreement. We cannot guarantee results. Past results do not guarantee future results. Consult with a licensed attorney for information regarding the specifics of your case. How to prepare for a child custody hearing is crucial when you are in a custody battle. If a mother and father have joint custody they must appear in court and the judge must rule on a parenting time schedule and calendar. Last week I was in court representing my client who was the mother in a hotly contested divorce & custody case regarding parenting time for 2 young children. In preparing her case in the 2 weeks leading up to the hearing, I conditioned the Mother to think in terms of what is best for the children. The mother and father were trying to put together a parenting time schedule and each presented their own schedule. What I stressed to my client is that she needed to create a schedule that worked best for her children and not herself. So instead of testifying how her proposed schedule was good because it worked around her ‘work’ schedule she spoke about why the schedule was best for her children. In contrast the father in the case only spoke about what was convenient for him, that worked around his work schedule. It was all about him. When asking a judge to rule in your case you must remember that is not about you. When you are at a custody trial and in the courtroom it is all about the children. Whatever you say, present or propose must always been in the best interest of the children. The judge will rule on what creates the most consistency and stability for the children. So you should train your mind to make this about the children and give testimony and the reasons why the schedule you are proposing will create the most consistency and stability for the children.

What's Involved in Modifying a Custody Agreement or Parenting Plan?
 
04:36
http://www.commandthecourtroom.com In this video I go over what's involved in modifying an existing custody or parenting time plan.* What I mean is a plan that has already been signed off or order by the court. Over the years I've had several clients hire me because after they entered into an agreement and after the court answered orders about custody & parenting time, at some point, that person and their ex decided that a different plan was in the best interest of the child or children. So they made an informal agreement that was not approved by the judge to start for example, having the person that owed child support to pay less.

Moving Out of State in a Child Custody Case
 
06:10
http://commandthecourtroom.com Some things one will need to present to a judge if one is thinking about relocations in a child custody case.* Please read the Disclaimer below: *This video recording is for educational purposes only and should not be considered as the rendering of legal advice. The viewing of this recording does not create an attorney-client relationship. An attorney-client relationship is only formed when you have signed an engagement agreement. We cannot guarantee results. Past results do not guarantee future results. Consult with a licensed attorney for information regarding the specifics of your case. I've been getting a lot of questions from people who have the issue of relocation in their child custody case. Either they want to move out of state, city, town, country with their child or they are the parent who do not want their child to move out of state, city, etc. There are many cases when a parent a wants to be able to relocate the child and many times the other parent is fighting against the other parent relocating the child. Step 1: You always start with the best interest factors. So wherever you are located go to your States statutes and the child custody factors also known as the best interest factors for your state. I talk about the best interest factors in a lot of my videos. If you want to download a free list of the child best interest factors go to my website http://commandthecourtroom.com and you can get a checklist of all of the best interest factors that the judge will look at. You have to be prepared to show in court how those best interest factors apply in your relocation case. But what is different about relocation cases is that there are other factors above the Best interest factors that you have to address with the judge. I am going to read to you some examples of questions that the judge is going to want answers to before he or she decides your relocation case. These may vary depending on what State you live in but this will be good start for you. You have to talk to the judge about the potential advantages of the move and how you think it will improve the quality of life for the child. You have to talk about your motivation in asking that the court allow you to relocate with your child. And if you are the parent who is opposing the relocation of the child you have to show the judge what your motivation is in your opposition. One thing you will need to show is what is the parenting time going to look like if this relocation is granted. Is the parent whose child is moving away going to be able to have parenting time and what is it going to look like. What is the transportation cost going to be for the parent who is going to have to travel to see the child? How is that cost going to be split and is it even going to be feasible for the other parent who will have to travel to see the child. The judge will look at the impact that the move will make on the childs quality of life. The mental and physical toll it might take, what does the child actually want. What are the living conditions going to be? The judge will also look at the strength of the ties the child has currently with their school, friends, activ For example if I have a client who wants to move their children I will ask them to get information about the children's new school, the rating of the school, how far is the school going to be from where that parent is living. I want to know what type of salary the parent is going to be making in the new location. So these are the type of questions that I am going to be asking and what the judge will want to know.

Joliet Family Law :: Top 10 Child Custody Mistakes #1 BreslanLaw.com
 
03:55
Joliet Family Law :: Visit http://BreslanLaw.com for a free family law consultation or call (815) 726-7950 Hi- I'm Victoria Breslan a divorce and family attorney serving Joliet IL and the surrounding Will County communities. I've devoted a large part of my practice to help clients avoid common family law pitfalls and set them on the fast-track to emerge from child custody cases in the best emotional and financial shape possible. Whether you're currently in the middle of a divorce or taking your ex back to court, in this ten part video series, I'm going to address some of the most common child custody mistakes to avoid. Custody cases can be very complex. There are a lot of moving parts and not one issue is more important that another. Winning and losing a custody case is usually everything, and sometimes the only thing parents cling to in a divorce case. Over the years I have seen people do a lot of emotionally reactive things that have negatively impacted their case which could have been avoided altogether. Your goal throughout, is to be the absolute best parent that you can possibly be. Your actions and the decisions you make during this process can be life changing for you and your children. You have a better chance of coming out on top just by avoiding of these 10 common child custody mistakes. Mistake #1 -- Letting your negative emotions toward your spouse cloud your judgment. One of the biggest mistakes I see individuals involved in custody matters make is to let their personal animosity towards the other parent take precedence to the best interests of their child. Candidly, the courts care very little about why the parents decided to separate. They do however, look very close at which parent is putting the Children's best interests first. You should not disrespect or talk negative about the other parent to or in front of your children. This will hurt you in your custody case and worse still it will hurt your children. Even if you normally have good self-control these emotional types of situations can happen in a flash. It only takes one dumb move done out of anger, like pushing the other parent who is holding the baby at the time to lose custody. Once Custody is lost, you may never recover it. Also remember that anything you say, write down or put in electronic form on the internet may be used against you. Always assume your words and a judge will see written statements. Child custody cases are very emotional and when parent tensions run high and these emotions can lead to ugly verbal confrontations at the very least and actual physical violence at the very worst. You may make rash decisions that can harm your case or narrow your options in your case. Avoid these at all cost and in these situations just walk away. Letting your emotions get the best of you can cost you time, money and create everlasting damage to your children. http://www.youtube.com/jolietfamilylaw For more info visit: http://www.breslanlaw.com/joliet-family-law-attorneys-lawyers/

Don't Make This Mistake in Child Custody
 
04:40
http://commandthecourtroom.com In this video I talk about what happens if you choose to simply do nothing in your custody case. The short answer is, if you don't do anything in your case it's not going to be pretty. There are probably a couple of things that can happen. The first thing that can happen is if someone has filed a petition against you and their asking for a specific result and you haven't responded, or you haven't made an appearance in that case, you haven't responded to discovery requests, you're not showing up for hearings. The likely result is that the judge is going to enter a judgement against you. In some states this is called a Default Judgement. In a case where you are not doing anything, the other party is probably going to get everything that he or she wants. I have not had this happen in a number of years, but there have been a couple of times where the other party does nothing and what ends up transpiring is me and my client go to a hearing. A judge takes testimony and my client makes requests about whatever he or she is asking for and the judge grants those requests. The second thing that could happen if you do nothing in your case is potentially be found in contempt of court. If there are court orders in place where the judge is telling you to do X.Y and Z and you ignore those orders, the judge is going to look at it as you are thumbing your nose up at the court. And the judge could sanction depending on whatever it is that you are not or should be doing. The judge could order you to pay a financial penalty or put in jail. The judge could take away time between you and your kids. So there are a lot of things the judge could do. I wanted to cover this topic because a few weeks ago a potential client came into my office and she had had a case filed against her months ago. The case was the other parent was seeking to modify existing custody arrangement and parenting time arrangement. And although the parties had never been to court before, they had been making decisions about their child together and in fact the child was spending half the time with the potential client..the mother. But in the petition that her ex was filing was asking for full decision making and he was asking that the child spend all of the time except for every other weekend with him. So because this potential client hadn't responded, she was on the verge of getting a default judgement against her. And this was something that was clearly not in the best interest of the child. So I scrambled and tried to help her do damage control. We have yet to find out if we have done that. I hate to see anyone in that position especially when they are actively involved in their child's life. Especially when their child loves them and needs them. And especially when it's in the best interest of the child for both parents to be involved. I know this process is scary and a lot of people kind of want to bury their head in the sand and not think about it because it stresses them out too much. Please don't do that. I'm begging you. Don't do nothing in your case!

10 Traits of Toxic Parents Who Ruin Their Children’s Lives
 
10:22
Raising children is very difficult and no one has the right to judge someone's particular parenting style. However, some parenting mistakes are more dangerous than others and can seriously damage your child’s health. This video will help you find out what actually affects a child’s psyche and teach those who have toxic parents how they can deal with this issue. When raised by narcissistic parents, children suffer from slowed-down emotional development or none at all, will most likely suffer from depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder when they become adults and grow up into an adult that’s either a self-saboteur or a person ready to sacrifice everything to achieve high goals. Children of toxic parents live in constant fear and apprehension. They’ll grow up into teenagers forced to listen to their parents' complaints, adjust to a "complicated situation", put themselves in their parents' shoes, and help, tolerate, and console them. Toxic parents might not see anything wrong whatsoever in telling all the relatives, neighbors, and family friends that deeply sensitive information the child was pressured into disclosing. These types of parents instill an inferiority complex in their kids since they don't wanna see their child try new things and succeed. Their narcissistic self-love generates fear at the thought of their child becoming better, smarter, and more successful than they are. These parents seem to “generously” offer something that their children don’t really need, but any refusal causes resentment. A grown kid starts thinking, "My parents probably just want some company and wanna feel needed." So they accept the help, thank the parents, and offer something in return. But there's no happy ending here because the parents will always remind their children of that "favor" they did for them. Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music TIMESTAMPS The effect of toxic parenting on kids 0:53 Traits of toxic parents: 10. "Fear me yet love me." 2:01 9. "You need to deal with adult problems, but you still have no rights." 2:34 8. "Be the best but don't forget that you're not special." 3:14 7. "Open up to me but don't be surprised by ridicule." 3:54 6. "You're bad so don't even bother trying to become better." 4:31 5. "You can be successful but only if there’s something in it for me." 5:28 4. "Do exactly what I say, but it’s your fault if you fail." 6:15 3. "You’re such an inconvenience, but don't leave me alone." 6:38 2. "Accept our help but stop exploiting us." 7:11 1. "Trust me, but I’m still gonna go through your stuff." 7:58 How to handle a toxic parent? 8:44 SUMMARY -When raised by narcissistic parents, children don't feel loved, heard, or seen, believe that how they look is more important than who they really are as a person. They don't feel support when they try to develop their true self. -For toxic parents, an emotional attack is synonymous with love and attention. -Kids of toxic parents probably believe that it's specifically their bad behavior that makes their father abuse alcohol to calm himself down. -Even if their kid performs much better than they did once upon a time, all of the child's achievements are taken for granted. -Toxic parents force their children to be sincere and later use the same personal information against the kids. -Toxic parents eagerly discuss their child's failures and flaws. -They enjoy boasting about their kids’ success so that others envy them. Plus, a successful child is a guaranteed better life for parents. -Parents treat their child like an object: they make all the plans and expect their kids to follow along. -Toxic parents never want to let their children go. Yet they’re always pointing out that the house, the money, and the food belongs to them. -The kids turn into prisoners in either case: if they refuse their parents' help, they’re ungrateful brats. If they accept, they’ll always be made to feel indebted. -If you try to restrict access to your personal territory, your parents accuse you of distrust or even hiding something illegal or immoral. -We don’t pick our parents, and we can’t really change them. The only thing we can change is our reaction to their actions. Limit access to your personal territory. Choose your personal interests over those of your parents.

How do we decide on a parenting plan that is best for our children?
 
03:15
Law Office of Marta J. Papa, P.C. - http://consideringdivorce.com/ Marta J. Papa, a Divorce Attorney and Mediator, answers: How do we decide on a parenting plan that is best for our children? Read the transcript of this video below. The people most qualified to develop a parenting plan for children are the parents of those children. Ask any Judge and they will agree with me. The best method of deciding a parenting plan is for the parents of the children to sit down in a safe, comfortable environment and talk about their goals and concerns for their children. Then they can come to an agreement that they both think is in the best interest of the children. Those same parents then need to make very specific decisions about the following issues: 1. How the children will move back and forth between them in a pre-arranged manner so that the children have access to both parents using a predictable schedule. 2. How the parents are going to make agreements in the future about important decisions regarding the children, such as education, medical care, and religion. They can share jointly in these decisions, or one person can be in charge of each particular decision category. 3. Finally, the parents need to address various parenting issues, like: a. Who provides transportation for the kids; b. How are they going to communicate about the children and their activities in the future; c. Who pays for what expenses; d. How to handle holidays; e. Vacations; f. Dispute resolution methods in case they can’t agree in the future; g. How or who is going to decide what activities – including extracurricular activities – the children may participate in; h. Child support; i. Medical insurance; j. Any other issues they expect to arise in co-parenting their children. The best news is that as long as the children feel they are allowed to have a meaningful relationship with both parents, the actual “time plan” doesn’t matter. Studies have revealed that the schedule of moving between Mom and Dad is not what matters. It is the parents’ permission for the children to love both Mom and Dad that matters, along with minimizing parental conflict. Marta J. Papa has been helping clients navigate the legal, financial, and emotional aspects of divorce for over 25 years. Known widely as the Divorce Whisperer®, she has successfully completed over 4,000 mediated divorces and is considered an authority on mediation nationwide. Recently, through a Missouri Lawyer’s Weekly poll, she was voted by her peers as one of the “Best Divorce Attorneys in Missouri.” She was also elected by both her peers and Martindale-Hubbell to the “Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers” in recognition of her accomplishments as a St. Louis divorce attorney.

If the judge rules that the child can relocate with a parent then that parent 'wins' and the other parent loses and vice versa. The burden of proof is on the person seeking to have the children relocate with them. That means that they have to prove to the judge that relocating the child is in the child's best interest. Depending on where you live there is a list of factors, on top of the normal 'Child's Best Interest Factors' that the judge needs to look at to decide whether relocation is in the child's best interest. So where ever you live, you need to do relocation research and find out what the relocation laws are in your state. You need to know each and every factor the judge is going to look at because you have to adjust each and every one of them. In your relocation hearing , If a parent wants to relocate then the judge is going to want to know whether there is still going to be the opportunity for the parent who's left behind to have a substantial and continuing relationship with the children, especially if the parent who is being left behind has had a lot of involvement and bonding relationship with the kids. The fact is, if you are moving your child out of state, the child will be thousands if not more miles away then that relationship, once the child moves, will never be the same. That parent will no longer have the ongoing or weekly visitation that they had before. The parent for example won't be able to attend parent/teacher conferences, be involved in their child's extra-curricular activities. It is really going to affect the level of that parent's participation in their child's lives. If you're the parent seeking to relocate with the children you are going to have to show the judge how that quality of relationship that the other parent shares with the children can continue. I will say that in a lot of my relocation cases where I am representing the parent that is wanting to move with the children, I encourage them to tell the other parent that they can have every single break, that they can have all or most of the summer...all the times that the children are not in school, they can have. In a lot of cases, that does increase the chances for the parent that wants to relocate, however in some cases, it has not made a difference. The reason is because the parent who wants to move has not proven to the judge's satisfaction that moving is in the best interest of the child. If you are the parent wanting to relocate it is not impossible. I've had a lot of judges grant the relocation in spit of the other parent's objections. You just have to really do your research in your state for the factors the judge is going to be looking at. Get your evidence ready and your ducks in a row and be ready to present it. If you are the parent who is opposing the relocation of your child, same advice for you. Look at the relocation factors in your state or jurisdiction. You will need to spin those in a way that the judge will have no choice but to find that relocation is not in the best interest of the children.

Section 5: Positive Aspects of Shared Parenting
 
02:03
Custody arrangements made through a court often include plans for holidays. As co-parents, you should aim to be flexible and fair with holiday scheduling. For example, some children would prefer to spend one-half day with each parent rather than only see one parent on a holiday. Other children and parents find this too fragmented, so they alternate attending holiday events. One of the first steps to successful co-parenting during holidays is to take care of your emotions. Some newly divorced people consider holidays or special events an exciting opportunity to celebrate in a new, more meaningful way; but many parents and children experience lots of strong emotions at these times. Anger, jealousy, shame, guilt, or fear may surface or be repressed and trigger depression or anxiety. This can steer you off course from your best co-parenting plans. To help yourself and your kids, take some time to share those feelings with a trusted individual. Talking to a friend or a professional can release some of the tensions and make the holiday time more positive.

Other Parent Not Spending Time with Child During Their Parenting Time
 
03:22
http://commandthecourtroom.com One parenting time dispute I see is when one parent does not spend time with the child during their agreed upon parenting time. A lot of clients come to my office upset because the other parent, during their parenting time with the children, that parent is not actually spending time with the children. They are shipping the child off to the grandmother's house or leaving the child with a step-parent or sending them over to the neighbor's house. And the parent who is upset because they say if that parent is not going to spend their time they are given with the children, then they would like to spend that time. So in this situation and we are in the negotiating phase of a parenting time plan that is best for the children, I often talk about a provision called 'the first right of refusal'. If a parent can't spend with those children for the set amount of hours that was agreed upon in the parenting time agreement, then they have to give the other parent the opportunity to have the children during those times. The idea behind that is that the parent should have time with the children before any third party. So a lot of times that helps alleviate the worry or the gripe that the children are not spending time with the other parent as agreed. Having said that, I have taken this 'right of first refusal' provision to trial because in some cases there are parents who don't want it. They think it opens a whole can of worms and sometime it does. There are judges, at least where I practice, that will not include 'the right of first refusal' in the parenting plan for the very reason that it does open up a can of worms. Essentially they are saying that it is each parent's business what they do with the kids and who is watching the kids while those kids are in their care. Now it's only been a handful of judges that do this. Th'e vast majority of judges where I practice will honor a request for a right of first refusal' provision to be included in a parenting plan. A lot of people don't even realize this exists so I hope this video raises awareness and if you have that issue, you could try to reach an agreement with the other parent.

Pay Attention to Your Child's Behavior | Parenting Plans | Child's Best Interest
 
04:30
http://commandthecourtroom.com If you have a parenting time agreement you need to play close attention to your child's behavior & whether your parenting plan is in the best interest of your child. Paying attention to his or her behaviors and deciding whether or not there's something that you need to do differently or you need to work with the other parent on. You need to make sure that your child is above all happy. When you're in the middle of a custody case it really is all about the children. I've talked about in many of my videos how everything that the judge is going to consider points to what's best for the child. I'm raising this issue because I just got out of court and in this particular case it really should be an easy case result. But it hasn't been unfortunately because from my perspective the father is really angry and bitter and he's trying to control the mother. So at a prior court hearing the parties agreed that when the other parent was having parenting time with the child that the parent who was not having parenting time was going to have a phone call a day with the child. It was actually the father who requested these phone calls. The mother consented and she said no problem. Let's set the phone calls between this time and this time. Each of the parties can talk as long as the child wants to talk. What ended up happening is that the child doesn't really want to talk much to father on the phone and I guess that's upsetting to the father and it's upsetting to the child. So now the father has changed his position and he's decided that he doesn't want the phone calls to happen. So he has asked the mother to stop the phone calls. So when the child's with one parent the other parent would not get any contact with the child. In talking to mother I told her that this was a situation where the parties had made a parenting agreement and she had every right to insist on him following this agreed upon arrangement if that's what she wanted to do. She agreed but said I would love to talk to our child when he's with Dad but this is what I'm observing when the child's with me. When it's time for the phone call with Dad and Dad calls the child might be involved in playing with his siblings and his cousins and he's having a fabulous time and that's what children should be doing. The child is totally distracted. He has the phone call with the father and then he comes back and he's crying and he's upset. He goes in his room and shuts himself in. So she said I really don't think that it’s best for these calls to continue. She said by the same token when I call to have my telephone call while the child is with father, the child is really nervous on the phone. He's worried that I'm mad at him and he's worried that the father's mad at him and she said I just don't think it's good for these calls to continue right now. So I was really surprised and I was pleased at mom's position on this because there's so many people out there who would have insisted and said no I need to have contact with the child because I want to know how they're doing and this is an agreement that they made. But really what mom is looking at just what's going to make the child happiest. She is putting her child first in her custody case. Now Mom doesn't have any concerns about Dads parental fitness or anything like that. And there is a lot of other factors that could come into play in different types of cases. You have to look at those as well but Mom’s head was at and is in the right place because she's looking at what is best for the child and what's making the child happy. As a side note the child is having some problems and mom is hoping that the parties can explore counseling for the child to help him work through these problems. The child is about seven years old so counseling might be appropriate in this situation and by all means look at that if you think it might help in your case.

AUGUSTINE, KISSIMMEE. Attorney Tom Olsen: Attorney Paul Newnum, I know typically on holidays, it gets to be a hot time for you because people are interested in sharing custody with their children, particularly on holidays. Attorney Paul Newnum: Which is where something like a parenting plan can come in handy because if you set out the holiday schedule, then you have a plan of expectations in advance and that reduces the opportunity for conflicts. Attorney Tom Olsen: Okay, well, we’re in Orange County, Florida, Attorney Paul Newnum, so just out of curiosity, do the Orange County divorce judges, do they have a standard parenting plan how you share custody of your children here in Orange County? Attorney Paul Newnum: No. Some judges operate on an unsaid presumption of a 50-50 split of time, but they also apply that in the context of the 20 different factors that factor in for the best interest of the child. So every case is different and every judge is supposed to decide every case on its own facts. Attorney Tom Olsen: Well, even with that said, even if they’re doing 50-50, is there a standard procedure about how they handle holidays like Memorial Day weekend or Christmas or Thanksgiving? Attorney Paul Newnum: Well, it depends on the parents’ work schedule, the child’s school schedule, the age of the child, but you can set forth -- for example, just this past week, we had a case where mother wanted every Memorial Day weekend, father wanted every Labor Day weekend; they agreed upon it and that’s the schedule. Attorney Tom Olsen: All right. Well, the good news is it sounds like when people do get divorced they walk out of court, it is very clear, black and white in their order as to how the custody of the children is being split, including holidays. Attorney Paul Newnum: Yes, generally speaking; however, there are those cases that come back a second time because there’s some vagueness or ambiguity in the agreement that has to be cleared up, so they find themselves in conflict, they need to get that conflict cleared up and then you define expectation.

Parenting Orders by Aussie Divorce , Alan Weiss
 
01:55
Parents who have separated or divorced, as well as parents who have never been married, can ask a Family Law Court for a parenting order. The most common questions addressed by parenting orders are: • Where will the children live? • How much time will the children spend with each parent? • How will important decisions about the children be made, including where they will go to school and whether they should have elective medical treatment? Australian law presumes that parents should share responsibility for raising a child if they are able to do so. The law also presumes that each parent should have as much time with a child as possible, consistent with the other parent’s rights. When judges make a parenting order, they consider the circumstances so they can fashion an order that is practical. They also consider whether there is a need to protect the child or a parent from family violence. The court is always required to make an order that is in the best interests of the child. That same principle should guide parents as they negotiate parenting issues. If you need advice about parenting orders, you should consult a lawyer. Only a lawyer can give you legal advice. https://www.aussiedivorce.com.au/family-law/parenting-orders/
Co-Parenting in a High Conflict or Toxic Relationship
 
04:56
http://commandthecourtroom.com What happens when 2 people share joint custody but they are just not capable of co-parenting. This co-parenting can be either the fault of one person or mostly be the fault of both people. I have a hard time believing that the inability to co-parent is just the fault of one person. I tend to think that when there is an issue or dispute between two people some party has a role, even though it may be a very small role, in that ability to co-parent. But what if two people have been at each other's throats and the relationship has been toxic for years or sometimes it's just several months. What if that inability to co-parent is really affecting the child and showing up in the child's behaviors at home or at school. I have had the unfortunate experience of having a couple of judges really take severe action and doing something about that inability to co-parent. In a couple of my cases many years ago, some judges observed the parties and the fact that they were always in court. There was always high-conflict. There was always arguing and drama when they were having exchanges. They couldn't have any kind of conversation that didn't end up in a verbal loud dramatic arguments. What these judges did was take custody of one parent and awarded sole custody to the other parent. And they also maximized one parent's time and minimized the other parent's time. Because they felt that the child being with one parent more, that parent would be making more of the decision making and everyday decisions and it would reduce the amount of the decision making that the parents would have to have with one another. So what happened is one parent got more of the decision making and one parent got more of the parenting time, so really it could be said that one of the parent's lost out, but what really end up happening was the child lost out in these cases. The child lost out on the benefit of two parents who have something to offer him or her...have a say in his or her life. And not just for major decisions but for those everyday decisions or everyday activities, extra-curricular activities that are happening in the child's life such as at school or with their friends. This not best for the children but the judges will go to those extremes if the two parties cannot figure out a way to co-parent. Not all judges will do that but just know that there are some judges who will do that.

How to Get Kids to Listen

Why is it so hard for so many parents and teachers to get kids to do as they are told? Because too many adults have followed some very bad advice. Family psychologist John Rosemond offers some useful tips on how to get the little barbarians to listen.

It’s probably been a while. That’s too bad because the best research tells us that obedient children are happy children. And, from my experience as a family psychologist, the parents of obedient children are happy parents. Since all parents want their children to be happy, the question becomes: How does one get a child to obey? Is there some trick to it? Well, there are certainly are a lot of parents who think so. They believe that proper discipline is a matter of using the right methods, techniques, and strategies: what I call consequence delivery systems. Parents have been using these behavior-modification-based methods since they became popular in the 1960s – seemingly to no avail. Would anyone argue that today’s kids are more obedient than kids were several generations ago? I don’t think so. The reason these methods and techniques don’t work is that proper discipline is not a matter of proper methods. It’s a matter of a proper attitude on the part of the parent. Let me illustrate the point. Let’s say that for a week I observe the classroom of a grade school teacher who has the reputation of being the best disciplinarian in her district. She consistently has fewer behavior problems than any of her colleagues. What is she doing? She’s making her expectations perfectly clear. Which means, first, she communicates in simple, declarative sentences. She doesn’t use fifty words when she could use ten. The more words you use to communicate your expectations, the less confident you sound. Second, she prefaces her instructions to her students with authoritative phrases like “I want you to…” and “It’s time for you to…” She says, “It’s time for you to take out your math books and turn to page 25” as opposed to “Let’s take out our math books and turn to page 25. Okay?” Third, this teacher does not explain the motives behind her instructions to her students. Why? Because she knows that explanations invite arguments. Whenever parents tell me they’re dealing with an argumentative child I know that these well-intentioned people are explaining themselves. They tell their child why they want him to pick up his toys, for example. And he argues, because you can always pick apart an explanation. If you don’t explain yourself when you give an instruction to a child, then the child, being a child, is almost surely going to ask for one. He’s going to ask Why? or Why not? At which point… get ready for a big surprise… your answer should be “Because I said so.” For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/how-get-kids-listen

Developing a Parenting Plan: Part 1 - Sumner County, Tennessee
 
03:32
Developing a Parenting Plan: Part 1 November 4, 2015 by Jay Ingrum Phillips-Ingrum-Headshots-5_finalDeveloping a Parenting Plan: Part 1 of a 4 Part Series Custody: PRP vs. ARP and Joint Custody The primary residential parent (PRP) is the parent with whom the child resides more than fifty percent of the time. The alternate residential parent (ARP) is the parent with whom the child resides less than fifty percent of the time. Joint custody can mean a variety of things to different people. However, when I think of true, joint custody, I think of a 50/50 split of parenting time. By this I mean one week with the mother and one week with the father. Generally, I do not recommend true, joint, 50/50 custody arrangements unless the parties get along extremely well and live very close to one another. Oftentimes, this is not the case. After all, if the parties got along well, then they probably would not be getting divorced. A 50/50 split of parenting time can be very hard on the children. It can be too much back and forth. Children tend to do better knowing this is my home, this is my room, this is where my things are, and these are the rules and the routine that I will follow the majority of the time. It is hard to foster such a routine and continuity when children are going back and forth every week like a “tennis ball in a tennis match.” Visitation: Days with Mother vs. Days with Father Parents should set a visitation schedule that is in the best interest of the children first and foremost. Parents should consider where they each live, their work schedules, the children’s school schedules, and the children’s extracurricular activities. Parents must also understand that the number of days they each receive with the child(ren) will be one factor in determining the amount of child support that one will pay and the other will receive. This should not be the primary consideration in setting a visitation schedule, but it must be a factor in each parent’s decision making process on this issue. Holidays and Your Family Traditions When parents are looking at setting holiday visitation for each parent with the children I always advise them to think of the children first, but to also consider each side of the family’s holiday traditions. I strongly believe that each parent should try to honor each side of the family’s holiday traditions. For example, if the mother’s family opens Christmas presents on Christmas Eve every year, and the father’s side of the family opens Christmas presents on Christmas morning, then the parents should set the children’s Christmas visitation schedule accordingly. However, if both sides of the family have the exact same traditions, then the holiday visitation should alternate in even and odd years. Fall, Winter/Christmas, Spring, & Summer Breaks All of the major breaks from school for the children should be handled in the same way, and that is to alternate them in even and odd years, unless one parent is off work and the other parent is not. Again, the parents should try to work well with one another for the benefit of the children. Temporary and Permanent Parenting Plans are really about the children, not the parents.

Can a Parent Who is Not Seeing Their Child Get Joint Custody?
 
05:04
http://www.commandthecourtroom.com Today I want to talk about whether a parent who is not seeing or spending time with his or her child or children stands a chance of getting joint custody or parenting time. Can this result in one parent getting sole custody of the child? Will it result in a restriction of parenting time allowed for one parent? The answer to that question is it really depends on a number of factors. These factors are called ‘The Best Interest of the Child Factors”. If you haven’t already download my ‘Best Interest Factors Checklist’ by going to: http://www.commandthecourtroom.com Whatever State you are in you should research your child custody statutes. And in those child custody laws there is going to be a list of factors that the court is going to consider in making a decision about custody and or parenting time. Again, this list is commonly referred to as ‘The Best Interest of the Child Factors” And not ONE factor controls, in other words the judge usually looks at the Interplay between a bunch of different factors. Not one factor is going to outweigh all of the other factors. So the fact that a parent is not spending time with the child is not the only thing the judge is going to look at regarding whether the parents will get equal decision making or equal parenting time with the child. Now another thing I pose to you is you really have to look at the reason the parent is not spending time with the child or that there is no communication with the child. Some examples for instance: Is the other parent is getting in the way and impeding that relationship or refusing visitation? Are there indications of parental alienation by one of the parents? If that is the case then I think that is not a very good thing for the parent who is getting in the way of the relationship and essentially preventing the other parent from spending time with his or her child or children. At least in Arizona child custody laws one of our best interest factors is Which parent is more likely to promote a frequent, meaningful and continuous relationship with the other parent. If one of the parents is not doing that then I would say that is a strike against that parent. Now not all states may list that as a best interest factor in their custody laws and statutes, it is still something you can and should bring up to the judge during your custody hearing. You can tell the judge, yes judge I have not been seeing my child because he or she, the other parent hasn’t been letting me. The second thing to consider is if the other parent is letting you see your child or children and you already have been awarded parenting time but you are NOT seeing the child then why not?

Relocating Across Town Can Impact Your Parenting Rights

http://commandthecourtroom.com Moving from one part of the city or town to the next CAN have an impact on your child & your custody rights.* Please read the disclaimer below: *This video recording is for educational purposes only and should not be considered as the rendering of legal advice.

Local relocation is when one parent is moving from one part of a city or town to another where the distance is for example 45 minutes or an hour away from the other parent. 'Relocation' normally will be used when you are talking about one parent moving either to another city or another state, or . These local relocation cases can really have an impact on a parent's time that they are able to exercise and also on the children. This is a case I am working with now. A few years ago two parties went through a custody proceeding and at the time they were living pretty close to each other, about 10 to 15 mins away from each other. That is a nice distance when parents are sharing children in common. Fast forward a few years later and the mother decided that she wanted to move, so she moved about 45 minutes away from where the father lived. These parents had been sharing equal parenting time where one parent who get the child one week and then the other parent the next week. So what this meant was that the child had to enroll in a new school, one that was close to her mother's new home. The result is that when the child is now with the father, the children are spending a ton of time in the car on the way to and from school and cutting down the quality time that they now share with Dad. In my mind, it is not fair for the mother to move the child without notice to the father in this case. But more importantly, that's not fair to the kids. It's not fun for an adult much less a child to spend hours sitting in rush hour traffic at the beginning of the day and at the end of the day. Plus, they have homework to do and baths to take, get ready for bed, etc. It remains to be seen what will happen in that case, but I had a similar case where the father moved significant distance away and the parents had been sharing equal decision making and parenting time, and the judge said, 'You know what? You moved away so you're not getting equal time anymore. So the father could then only get the kids on the weekend, because the judge would not have the child's day to day lives disrupted. What the judge did was what was in the best interest of the child. So, before you decide to relocate 'locally' think about how the move might affect the lives of your children and how it could, in the long run, negatively affect your parenting time and decision making rights depending on your judge.

Obtaining a Restraining Order in Your Custody or Divorce Case
 
06:38
http://commandthecourtroom.com How to best plead your case for obtaining a restraining order or order of protection in your custody or divorce case.* *This video recording is for educational purposes only and should not be considered as the rendering of legal advice. The viewing of this recording does not create an attorney-client relationship. An attorney-client relationship is only formed when you have signed an engagement agreement. We cannot guarantee results. Past results do not guarantee future results. Consult with a licensed attorney for information regarding the specifics of your case. Restraining orders can be called different things depending on the jurisdiction you live in. For example in Arizona there are 2 types of restraining order in the family law arena. One is called an order of protection & an order of protection could be placed into effect by a judge if a person comes in and is able to convince the judge that either domestic violence has occurred in a relationship or that it could occur in the relationship. In this type of order you have to show the court that there's some sort of domestic relationship. It doesn't necessarily have to be a marriage. It could be a boyfriend/girlfriend type of situation or a living together situation. The other type of restraining order in Arizona is called an injunction against harassment. So as far injunctions against harassment, there may not necessarily be domestic violence. Domestic violence is not needed to get an injunction against harassment, nor does there need to a romantic relationship. But a person can get an injunction against harassment say for example somebody is just calling them over and over and over...or texting them over and over. Calling their work and they won't leave somebody alone. So those are the two different types of restraining orders that as a family law attorney in Arizona, I deal with the most. So wherever you are, do your research. If you are in the family law court, find out what the restraining orders are specifically called and find out what's required and if there is more than one type of restraining order, find out what's required to get whatever type it is that you're seeking. Because this is the important point I want to make today. Over the past few weeks I've gone to court on a couple of restraining orders and in both of these cases, I've represented the mothers in the relationship and both of these mothers are going through divorce cases. In one of the hearings for the restraining order that I have, it was along hotly contested hearing that lasted over two different court days. I really had myself convinced that we had enough to show the judge that either domestic violence had occurred or that an act of domestic violence could occur. However, the judge disagreed. The judge decided that he was going to squash my client's restraining order. It was upsetting to her, it was upsetting to me. But looking back at what she had originally told the court the reason why she was wanting that order of protection, what she had written down in her petition, I just don't think she had been specific enough in terms of what she said the other party had done. In the other case we actually prevailed after our hearing and the judge was convinced that domestic violence had occurred and could occur in the future. In fact, in that particular case the judge took me and the other attorney back to his chambers. He said he was pretty concerned about my client's soon to be ex and that he thought he had some real serious problems. So the difference between these two cases was the specificity that each of my clients went into when they initially got the restraining order. If you are seeking a restraining order it's really important to get your facts together and to be very specific when you're talking to the judge about why you need a restraining order. Write down specific dates and really a lot of details about what happened and when and how you felt as the act of harassment was taking place or the threats or acts of domestic violence. Recordings, text messages, emails, those are obviously going to be helpful if the other person challenges your restraining order and you have to go to a hearing whether it should be upheld. If you are the person who has a restraining order that's been placed against you and you are objecting to that, then these are the ways you can attack the restraining order that the other person obtained against you. Look at it and see how specific the details are. Are the statements that have been made in the petition very general. Is there any evidence to back up the statements that have been made. What's your side of the story? Wendy Hernandez is a family law attorney in Phoenix, AZ and founder of Command the Courtroom.

Can You Withhold Parenting Time if Your Spouse Fails to Pay Child Support?
 
04:35
http://commandthecourtroom.com Today I want to talk with you about the relationship between parenting time and child support and if one can affect the other.* Please read the Disclaimer below: *This video recording is for educational purposes only and should not be considered as the rendering of legal advice. The viewing of this recording does not create an attorney-client relationship. An attorney-client relationship is only formed when you have signed an engagement agreement. We cannot guarantee results. Past results do not guarantee future results. Consult with an attorney for information regarding the specifics of your case. In my family law practice a lot of people come to me, especially those who are entitled to receive child support. They want to know if they are entitled to withhold parenting time from the other parent due to non-payment of child support. My inclination is to say No, because that is not in the child's best interest. Parenting time and child support are two separate issues. Just like if a parent is obligated by a court order to pay child support...if there is then is a court order in effect that says a parent is entitled to a certain amount of parenting time, then they are entitled to get it. The parent may not be happy because they are not getting child support, but they still must give the other parent the parenting time according their agreement. Because if they don't, they could face the same consequences that the parent who is failing to pay child support faces. So, there are ways to get a parent to pay child support if they are not doing it, other than withholding parenting time. The main way is to file an enforcement action in whatever jurisdiction you are in. An enforcement action is where you tell the court, this is the order that is in effect and the person that is obligated to follow that order is not doing so, and I want the court to enforce the order. So that is one tool a person can use if they are not getting child support. (or if they are not getting parenting time for that matter) Another tool a parent can use which is more serious is 'filing a petition in order to show cause regarding contempt of court'. In my mind contempt of court is more serious because when someone is facing a contempt of court charge, incarceration is one of the potential sanctions that they can get. Let's face it. Nobody wants to be put in jail because they are not following a court order. But if I really want to hammer someone who has not been paying child support for years for example or is tens of thousands of dollars behind on child support, then that is what I might file. I had a young father come to me recently and he was just devastated because his ex is using the children as a tool. She's trying to extort a large amount of child support from him and she's withholding the kids from seeing him. She is telling him that he cannot see the kids unless and until you pay me this amount of money per month. And the poor guy was kind of inclined to do it because he is desperate to see his kids because it has been a long time since he has been able to do so. My advice to him is you should not give in to threats my the mother. There are ways to go through the court process and get the result that is in the best interest of the kid. If both parents are fit and it is in the kid's best interest, then they should be seeing both Mom and Dad. So whether you are the Mom or the Dad, and you are not getting the parenting time or you are not getting the child support, use the tools that are available to you.

5. Honor Your Father and Mother
 
05:28
Even if You don’t Feel Like It Children owe their parents one thing. And no, it's not love. The Fifth Commandment understands that sometimes it's difficult or even impossible to love your parents. But it's almost always possible to honor them. Dennis Prager explains what that means and why it's so important. And consider this: if your children see you honoring your parents they are much more likely to honor you. Donate today to PragerU! http://l.prageru.com/2ylo1Yt Joining PragerU is free!

JOIN PragerFORCE! For Students: http://l.prageru.com/29SgPaX JOIN our Educators Network! http://l.prageru.com/2c8vsff Script: The Fifth of the Ten Commandments reads: "Honor your father and your mother." This commandment is so important that it is one of the only commandments in the entire Bible that gives a reason for observing it: "That your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you." Many people read that part of the Fifth Commandment as a reward. But while it may be regarded as a reward, the fact remains that it is a reason: If you build a society in which children honor their parents, your society will long survive. And the corollary is: A society in which children do not honor their parents is doomed to self-destruction. In our time, this connection between honoring parents and maintaining civilization is not widely recognized. On the contrary, many of the best-educated parents do not believe that their children need to show them honor, since "honoring" implies an authority figure, and that is a status many modern parents reject. In addition, many parents seek to be loved, not honored, by their children. Yet, neither the Ten Commandments nor the Bible elsewhere commands us to love our parents. This is particularly striking given that the Bible commands us to love our neighbor, to love God, and to love the stranger. The Bible understands that there will always be individuals who, for whatever reason, do not love a parent. Therefore, it does not demand what may be psychologically or emotionally impossible. But it does demand that we show honor to our parents. And it makes this demand only with regard to parents. There is no one else who the Bible commands us to honor. So, then, why is honoring parents so important? Why does the Ten Commandments believe that society could not survive if this commandment were widely violated? One reason is that we, as children, need it. Parents may want to be honored -- and they should want to be -- but children need to honor parents. A father and a mother who are not honored are essentially adult peers of their children. They are not parents. No generation knows better than ours the terrible consequences of growing up without a father. Fatherless boys are far more likely to grow up and commit violent crime, mistreat women, and act out against society in every other way. Girls who do not have a father to honor -- and, hopefully, to love as well -- are more likely to seek the wrong men and to be promiscuous at an early age. Second, honoring parents is how nearly all of us come to recognize that there is a moral authority above us to whom we are morally accountable. And without this, we cannot create or maintain a moral society. Of course, for the Ten Commandments, the ultimate moral authority is God, who is therefore higher than even our parents. But it is very difficult to come to honor God without having had a parent, especially a father, to honor. Sigmund Freud, the father of psychiatry and an atheist, theorized that one's attitude toward one's father largely shaped one's attitude toward God.

Mother Loses Custody Battle Because of Crazy Voicemails
 
05:17
http://commandthecourtroom.com The consequences of not being on your best behavior in a child custody battle can devastating for you and your family.* Please read the Disclaimer below: *This video recording is for educational purposes only and should not be considered as the rendering of legal advice. The viewing of this recording does not create an attorney-client relationship. An attorney-client relationship is only formed when you have signed an engagement agreement. We cannot guarantee results. Past results do not guarantee future results. Consult with a licensed attorney for information regarding the specifics of your case. I want to remind you that when you are going through a family law case whether it be a divorce case, a custody case, a spousal maintenance case, you have to remember that all eyes are on you. You are under a microscope and if you go into your trial or evidentiary hearing and you have done something to act crazy, expect that to be Exhibit A or Exhibit 1 in the evidence against you. It seems like common sense but I can’t tell you how many divorce and custody cases where I have witnessed one of the spouses act crazy. It could even be determined that you have a borderline personality disorder which would pretty much not give you a very good chance of losing custody. So here are 2 examples of actual cases: Example One: Right now I am going through a child support trial where the mom has become angry because in one of the earlier trials the court ruled more in the father’s favor. So she has now gone on a campaign to smear my client. She has gone to the IRS, she has contacted the sheriff’s office including the head sheriff, Joe Apaio and if you don’t know him, he is notorious for punishing dead-beat dads, and my client is not one of them but she has contacted him regardless. She has gotten in touch with Veteran Affairs in Washington DC and she is going around to every agency who will listen to get my client in trouble. When in fact he is doing everything he should be doing and had every right to seek sole custody. This is a clear example also where the fathers rights were upheld and rightly so. So when we go to trial you can bet we are going to present to the judge as evidence everything she has been doing to smear her husband, it is just going to make her look crazier and that is not going to help her credibility. During a divorce and custody case things can get really ugly really fast which more times than not results in a spouse not being on their best behavior ie acting crazy. Example Two: My client was the Father who was fighting for custody of his son and the mother was being very disrespectful of my client. She would call him vulgar names and leave him terrible voicemails on his phone. So at one point my client began recording these messages and we used that at trial. What ended up happening was that the court ordered that my client, the father would get sole custody and decision making rights for his child because the mother was clearly not capable of co-parenting. So that behavior ended up biting her in the bottom. So the point is you have to make it a habit to be on your best behavior at all times. But it shouldn’t just be happening when your case is pending. It should happen before and after the custody case, especially if you share children in common. It could affect your relationship with your child in the future and how your child thinks of you and your relationship with the other parent and you are modeling how you want your child to behave when he or she gets older. So remember when going through your family law case. “Crazy is as Crazy does” Wendy Hernandez is a family law attorney in Phoenix, AZ and founder of Command the Courtroom which teaches you how to handle yourself in court and achieve the best outcome when representing yourself in your divorce or child custody case.

Unconditional positive regard -- the power of self acceptance | Michelle Charfen | TEDxRedondoBeach
 
19:21
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Michelle shares her personal journey towards Unconditional Positive Regard and self acceptance through the lens of parenting. This is a story about relationships and ultimately the relationship you have with yourself. Michelle Charfen has had a lifelong passion for learning. She was fascinated by the human body and from an early age dreamt of becoming a physician. In high school, she began tutoring students, discovering a love of facilitating learning for others as well. She would eventually study Human Biology as an undergraduate at Stanford, teach preschool during the summer vacations, and spend the year after graduation teaching at an elementary school in East Palo Alto. Michelle’s childhood dream was finally realized upon attending Harvard Medical School. She then completed a residency in Emergency Medicine at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, followed by a research fellowship during which she obtained a Masters of Epidemiology from the School of Public Health at UCLA. Teaching medical students and residents in an academic environment was perfectly suited to her enthusiasm for constant learning. In 2008, she stepped down from her faculty position as an Assistant Professor at the UCLA School of Medicine to devote this period of life to her growing family while continuing to work part time in Emergency Medicine. Her personal journey, struggles, and successes as a parent organically led to an interest in supporting other families. Michelle completed the Parent Educator Certification Program through Echo Parenting and Education, and now combines this training with her previous experience and knowledge to help others learn effective tools for compassionate communication. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

Never Give Up in Your Child Custody Fight
 
09:54
http://www.commandthecourtroom.com Never give up the fight in your child custody case even if you feel your case is hopeless.* Please read the Disclaimer below: *This video recording is for educational purposes only and should not be considered as the rendering of legal advice. The viewing of this recording does not create an attorney-client relationship. An attorney-client relationship is only formed when you have signed an engagement agreement. We cannot guarantee results. Past results do not guarantee future results. Consult with a licensed attorney for information regarding the specifics of your case. In every case after I have talked to my clients & stressed how important it is to have rights to have their child in their lives, not one of them chose to give up and kept fighting. One viewer had downloaded my best interest checklist at and after reviewing all the best interest factors she came to the conclusion that she was basically ‘screwed’ in her custody case and the father was going to get everything he wanted. In the other email a father was upset because the mother had severely beaten their daughter & despite that fact the court allowed the mother to have temporary custody of the child pending the trial. Please remember in a family law case especially when there is child involved, it’s not a sprint, it’s a marathon. Hopefully in your case, it will take you only weeks or a month to get where you need to be with your children. However in some cases it may take years to get where you need to be with your child. The question then you must ask yourself is how important are my children to me? How much do they need me and how much do I want them in my lives? I have 2 actual cases where my clients felt hopeless but because they decided to press forward, things turned out to be ok. In one case I had a woman who had suffered domestic violence at the hands of her husband, kicked out of her house and she was representing herself in court without an attorney. At the temporary hearing the judge did not give her any time at all with her daughter. The woman eventually became my client and she did have some serious mental health problems including PTSD, a history of drug abuse and was sporatically employed. I took her case Pro-Bono which means free. We started tackling these issues, one step at a time and we slowly made progress. We got her help through the State so she could start treatment on her drug & mental health issues. She started seeing a psychiatrist, was diligent about taking medication and not missing any appointments. She entered and completed a drug rehab program and got off drugs and she tested for drugs for the court on a weekly basis. Fast forward to almost a year later: My client now has joint custody of her daughter with her ex-husband and she also has unsupervised parenting time. That is a huge leap from where she was a year ago when she came to see me. Her ultimate goal is to have equal parenting time but she is not there yet but she has started and she is showing the judge that she is working on her issues and at some point the judge is going to give her equal parenting time. The other situation was a case I just went to trial with recently where the other part was asking for sole custody of the daughter. My client was seeking joint custody but the other side wanted my client to only have supervised monitored access with the child. The judge wanted to see all of use before the court hearing started so he could get his impressions of the case. I knew walking into this meeting with the judge it was not going to go our way. In addition we were asking that the child be moved to another state At the time when we went into trial my client was not getting any time with her daughter. I talked to the judge about what was going on with the case as it was pending & had been going on for more than a year. There was a therapist that was involved and she was aligning with the father and her recommendations were biased as she was only getting information from the father. She was refusing to see my client and refusing to listen to what my client had to say. The judge was skeptical but I assured the judge that when we came to court we would present evidence that will prove the bias of the therapist was depriving my client of a relationship with her daughter. We went to court & we were able to prove our case. The judge ruled that my client would get joint decision making & she now has unrestricted access with her child.

How To Be A Good Parent - Best Parenting Advice And Positive Parenting Guide
 
04:22
How To Be A Good Parent: In this video, I am going to share with you how to be a good parent, best parenting advice and positive parenting guide. Subscribe to our channel for more videos. Watch: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EX6enmDeglM) Being a parent can be one of the most rewarding and fulfilling experiences of your life, but that doesn't mean it's easy. No matter what age your child/children is/are, your work is never done. To be a good parent, you need to know how to make your children feel valued and loved while teaching them the difference between right and wrong. At the end of the day, the most important thing is to create a nurturing environment where your children feel like they can thrive and develop into confident, independent, and caring adults. If you want to know how to be a good parent, see Step 1 to be on your way. Loving Your Child -Give your child love and affection. Sometimes the best thing you can give your child is love and affection. -Praise your children. Praising your children is an important part of being a good parent. -Avoid comparing your children to others, especially siblings. Each child is individual and unique. -Listen to your children. It's important that your communication with your children goes both ways. -Make time for your children. Be careful not to stifle or smother them, however. There's a big difference between protecting someone and imprisoning them within your too unyielding demands. -Be there for the milestones. You may have a hectic work schedule, but you should do everything you can to be there for the important moments in your children's lives, from their ballet recitals to their high school graduation. Being a Good Disciplinarian -Enforce reasonable rules. Enforce rules that apply to every person leading a happy and productive life — not model rules of your ideal person. -Control your temper as much as you can. It's important to try to be as calm and reasonable as you can when you explain your rules or carry them out. You want your children to take you seriously, not fear you or think of you as unstable. -Be consistent. It's important to enforce the same rules all the time, and to resist your child's attempts to manipulate you into making exceptions. -Be a united front with your spouse. If you have a spouse, then it's important that your children think of you as a united front — as two people who will both say "yes" or "no" to the same things. -Provide order for your children. Your kids should feel like there's a sense of order and a logic to things in their household and in their family life. -Criticize your child's behavior, not your child. It's important to criticize your children's actions, instead of your actual child. Helping Your Child Build Character -Teach your children to be independent. Teach your children that it is okay for them to be different, and they do not have to follow the crowd. -Be a good role model. If you want your child to be well-behaved, then you should model the behavior and character you hope your children will adopt and continue to live by the rules that you set. -Respect your child's privacy. Respect their privacy as you would want them to respect yours; for example, if you teach your child that your room is out of boundaries to them, respect the same with their room. -Encourage your children to have a healthy lifestyle. It's important to make sure that your children eat healthy food as much as they can, that they get plenty of exercises, and that they get enough rest every night. -Emphasize moderation and responsibility when it comes to alcohol consumption. -Allow your kids to experience life for themselves. Don't make decisions for them all the time; they must learn how to live with the consequences of the choices they make.

What are some common arrangements for child visitation in Florida?

What are some common arrangements for child visitation in Florida? | Law Office of Thomas P. Gill Jr. P.L. | http://www.gilllawoffice.com/ | (813) 654-0514 | 137 South Parsons Avenue, Brandon, Florida 33511 In Florida, the courts will generally approve any timesharing arrangement worked out between the parties and reduced to a marital settlement agreement and parenting plan. The court would like to see in a parenting plan substantial timesharing for both parents. Florida prefers that each parent share in both the joys and the burdens of raising their children. An example of a timesharing plan would be an equal timesharing plan where each parent has 50% of the time. Parents can break it up a week on, a week off or they can do something like one parent gets every Monday and Tuesday night, the other parent gets every Wednesday and Thursday night, and they rotate the weekends. Over a two week period this gives each parent seven days of timesharing.

You Can't Co-Parent with an IDIOT
 
41:24
In this episode of Morning Coffee, we share some of our challenging co-parenting experiences. Life after divorce isn't always easy especially when children are involved. Our views on this topic may seem extreme, but that's just our personalities.Our ex's are ex's for a reason (many reasons). We aren't trying to have a love festlike Will Smith, Jada Pinkett-Smith, and Sheree Fletcher, but we are grateful for their amazing example of love and family. Unfortunately, in most divorce situations life doesn't go that smooth. The goal is to allow the other parent to have some sort of parenting privileges without having an ongoing conflict. It is the hurt and hate that we feel towards our ex's that creates so many co-parenting conflicts. Be mindful not to place the kids in the center of adult wrath ; they have no clue the damage your ex has caused you. The children just want to be loved and to spend time with the father or mother. No matter what, focus on your own personal healing and on rebuilding your life. The Ballatts co-parenting tips: 1. Always have the child's best interest in mind 2. Never use the kids as pawns to hurt your ex 3. If possible, have little verbal communication as possible 4. Get a court order or have a written agreement regarding the ins and outs visitation & custody 5. Remember it's not easy, but it's possible #TheBallatts We hope this PodVlog helps.
