However impartial that Judge may want to be, they are still a stranger to you and your children, usually having little or no advance in-depth awareness of the particular nuances of your case being presented in Court. Moreover, and despite some opinions to the contrary, a Judge is still subject to the same human faults as you or any other person. They can be having a “bad day” and prone to mood swings, illogical conclusions, distractions in their personal life, previous poor experience with your attorney, or a host of other things to affect the way things transpire in the courtroom.Do not expect the Judge to make the “right” decision.

What Are You Really Trying To Say
Most of the time, parents don’t know what questions to ask or where to start in a family court case. It’s quite common for parents to be somewhat clueless about the whole process of getting custody or visitation of their kids or going through a straight divorce, and that’s okay. One of the biggest problems with situations like this is communication. If you don’t know what to say or how to say it, the chances are pretty good that your attorney or the person presiding over your mediation session or even the judge, will get confused about who’s talking about who, what the issue really is and what you or your ex wants out of this.
