The next time you are in court be mindful of what you say in court and how you say it. In particular, the Family law courts. There have been instances in family law courts where the judge has completely disregarded and brushed off a mediator’s recommendation. A complete and total 180.

In one instance, before the court hearing, the mediator recommended physical custody to the mother who represented herself in court. The mother in addressing the court at the hearing was aggressive in her tone and demeanor towards the judge. The court took offense and made a finding against the mother for custody of the child. It is not blatantly done by the courts but it does happen. The mother always represented herself in court in this matter and was unfamiliar with the idiosyncrasies of the court and the personnel. Had she been represented by a competent Southern California child custody attorney, the outcome would likely have been very different. This is what makes the difference between representing yourself and having a competent and skillful attorney like the ones at Wallin & Klarich.
