In case you missed it, here is a replay of a CTC Live I did on March 4th. One thing I talked about was who to listen to when you are trying to make decisions about your case. When you are going through a custody case often times it is really confusing because first of all you haven’t been to law school, the law is confusing and there are different kinds of laws you have to be mindful of when you go to court. I talk about some of these laws as well as answer some questions and comments from viewers.
Please read legal disclaimer at the end of this post.
