What is the hardest question to answer in Child Custody cases?

And I know it’s a sensitive question, especially these days… Do you have a job right now? That’s a yes or no question. It’s also probably the #1 question we can’t get a straight answer to in a courtroom, and understandably so, but we are 100% on your team without judgment. We know what we’re talking about and we know what we’re doing. If you have a job the answer is yes, we’ll follow up with where and what you do. If the answer is no, we’ll follow up and allow you to explain some meaningful context to that answer…

I’m no psychologist, but I understand it’s hard to just say “no” when you don’t have a job. You might feel threatened or defensive or embarrassed or whatever the emotion is. Unfortunately, what ends up happening in reality is that when you don’t just answer “yes or no” you look defensive or evasive or squirrelly. This is especially important when the Other Side’s lawyer is asking the questions.

Do you know that you’ve found and hired a #childcustody lawyer you can trust, that won’t judge you and knows to provide you the opportunity to explain yourself in court or otherwise in the proper context while allowing you to maintain a powerful and positive presence in the courtroom?
