The first thing you need to remember is it doesn’t matter whether you are a mo – ther or a father, cases have been won by both in the past so the precedent has already been set. I will say generally the courts do tend to find in favour of the mother more often but the only consideration of any court is the best interest of the child or children.

So you want child custody help? The first thing I will say is I know what you are going through and what you must remember is so do lots of other people. The Judge and other people involved in the hearing will sympathise with what you are going through so try to keep a hat on your emotions. The hearing will be emotionally charged on both sides and things will be said that are hurtful and in some cases untrue. You must remain calm and let your Lawyer deal with that for you, that’s what they are there for. The last thing you want to do is lose the case because you insulted the Judge by shouting out in his/her court, trust me they don’t appreciate this!

What else? Well if you can afford it get a Lawyer, they are the real experts. Laws vary from State to State and you need an expert to win child custody and even for things like the differences in child custody forms. If you are utilizing the services of a Lawyer, you need to ensure that they know what you know. You can not be worried about upsetting your ex at this point, believe me they will not worry about upsetting you.

Another thing that will stand you in good stead is being prepared. Keep a journal about everything that happens, when you see the kids, what you do together, anything the kids say about your ex. The Court will love it if when questioned you can refer to your notes for an exact answer.

Also as insignificant as this may sound, you need to make the Judge like you. However wrong it sounds, the Judge is going to base some of his/her decision on the type of person he thinks you are so be polite, don’t swear, dress formally and smartly, ideally a suit.

Ok so my top tips are:

1. Be Prepared.

2. Be Honest.

3. Be Precise.

4. Create A Good Impression.

And here is my greatest tip, as hard as this is for you emotionally it is harder for the child or children so keep them informed. Tell them you love them and none of this is their fault and reassure them at every point possible.

How to Draft a Fathers Rights Will

By Dennis Gac

People today are often under the common misconception that you must hire a lawyer or have significant experience or knowledge of the law in order to legally make your Will. This is an unfortunate misconception in that it makes people hesitate when it comes to creating their Will, and often these are the very people who need the Will the most. You would feel awful if your new wife was left with nothing while your “X” walked away with what you intended for her, your kids, or someone else! You need to protect yourself and those you love!

Creating a Will is much easier than and not as scary as people often seem to think. Here are a few guidelines to follow when thinking about you will.

  • To qualify as a legal Will, it must appear to the court by looking only at the document itself that you intended this document to be the final expression of your wishes as to the distribution of your property to take effect upon your death.
  • To the court, when you creating a Will is most important that you, as the Will maker, must have “testamentary capacity”. This is essentially under law in most states requiring that you were of “sound mind” when you created the Will.
  • If your Will is typed, it must be signed in the presence of two witnesses who must sign in the presence of you and each other. In a nutshell, the parties affirm that all of them are within sight of each other, that you are of sound mind, know what you are signing is your Will, and have asked the witnesses to so attest.
  • If a Will is thrown out, the estate is handled as if there had never been a Will to begin with.
  • “Codicils” are amendments made to an earlier, already existing Will. However, no written additions or changes should ever be made on the original document. Instead, a separate page should be prepared, referring specifically to the original Will, and executed with the same formalities required of a Will in your state.
  • If the desired changes are at all complicated, subject to more than one interpretation, or potentially in conflict with other provisions of the Will, it is really better to just start from scratch and do another Will. Remember to destroy the old one to avoid any confusion!

I have heard so many horror stories from people about how their significant other kept putting off creating their Will until it was too late, and now their family is left to pay! The biggest reason for this procrastination is really just not knowing what is expected of a Will and pervasive misconceptions of what is actually needed. Keep the suggestions that I have made above in mind while writing, and you will have and effective and legal Fathers Rights Will! E-mail

Preparation – The True Answer to Fathers Rights Issues

By Dennis Gac

I remember years ago, I was working with a nice fellow from the Philippines who could barely speak English and who acted scared as hell of going to court because of it! One of the things that I do most often is act as a kind of cheerleader trying to convince father’s that they “can” do this as long as they’re prepared. It doesn’t matter if you can speak English or not, or even if you’re scared as hell. If you’re prepared, in writing and package your case correctly, you’ll do as well as anyone.

So, this guy spends a great deal of time writing up a responsive declaration to a restraining order that his wife is trying to obtain against him. He also responds to her false and/or grossly distorted allegations involving parenting and divorce, serves everything correctly…to all the right parties and files everything correctly at the different departments of the court. He goes to court with the following strategy…..he says to the judge, “Your Honor, I’m a little nervous today, so I’ve taken the time to put everything I have to say in writing. If you have any questions, your Honor, please ask me.”

Well, here’s what happens, because the guy spoke very little English, acted nervous and had the “guts” to be there in the first place, the judge actually began helping him out…actually jumping on his side, chewing out the “X” wife for bringing such an outrageous request before the court and scolding her for trying to keep the kids from him. The judge not only gave him what he wanted, he asked if it was enough! True story!

Now most of you reading were either born speaking English or are very fluent speakers. If my client can win his case and he can barely even understand basic English, imagine what you can do!

But if you want to remain too scared to try, that’s fine. My contention, though, is if you want to improve your personal case you don’t need experience and you don’t necessarily need an attorney. Instead, what you do need is to become what I call is a “welcomed-guest” in the court room by being prepared in writing prior to the hearing. This shows respect for the court’s process and the court becomes more prone to grant what you’re asking for.

So that’s what we’re all about. That’s what we do for our clients…we prepare them for court by giving them as much legal information as possible. Not legal advice, just solid legal information based upon what other successful fathers have done in their situations.

No matter what your situation, preparation is the key to your answer!
