Handling the Truth in Family Law Cases

Remember the famous courtroom scene in the movie “A Few Good Men?” “ You can’t handle the truth?” Well that is a very fitting statement for family court. Of course, the “truth” is usually somewhere in the middle. Often the truth is dependent on who you are asking. What we mean by this is that there is a sense of the truth from your perspective and then there is a sense of the truth from the other side’s perspective. If you don’t recognize differences in perceptions you will be in for a long, long ride. We’re not telling you that you need to just fall in line with the other side’s story. What we are saying is that in order to strengthen your side you need to understand the other side. Why?

Well let us explain in an example. Let’s say the other side is saying that you shouldn’t have as much time with the children because you have a “drug” problem. Let’s say that you take prescription pain killers and that is your “drug problem.” It is very important to understand what the other side is saying about you so that you can adequately combat it. Maybe that means getting therapy. Maybe that means getting a doctor’s report. Who knows, but the bottom line is you need to know each side’s perception of the truth. This will allow you to be better positioned for settlement, negotiation or litigation. All of this is part of our strategy and approach with DivorcEnomics™.
