In Family Court, Be Respectful

You may think that the conversation you are carrying on in the halls of Family Court will not get back to your judge. But there are eyes and ears everywhere in the courthouse, and news travels fast.

A flippant comment made out of frustration may be relayed back to the judge, which could hurt your case. Even worse, if your behavior rises to the level that security is called to calm you down or escort you from the courthouse, it could taint the way the judge views you and your case.

You never know who is listening in on your conversation, so be respectful at all times.

Brangelina Custody War

America’s sweethearts Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are among the latest celebrities to split. In addition to divorce, Jolie filed for shared legal and sole physical custody of their six minor children.

Legal custody refers to a parent’s right to make decisions regarding the upbringing of the children, including religion, education, medical care, etc.

Physical custody involves where the children are physically residing. If Jolie wins, the children will reside with her and potentially only visit with Pitt.

But courts seldom award sole physical custody to one parent, unless there are findings that the other parent is unfit to have the children in their physical custody. Jolie’s actions were harsh and designed to severely restrict Pitt’s rights to his children. Hopefully, for the kids’ sakes, they will have equal access to both parents.
