Present an emotional, “gut-level" appeal to the court and to the influential people in your case - don't give up and you can be absolutely amazed at what can happen. In fact, your strength in who you are and just being yourself can be your strongest advantage. Forget the case law and the “legal-mumbo-jumbo". Nobody knows the facts of your case better than you, so don't let other people and “experts" make you doubt yourself.
You can absolutely use your emotions to your advantage. I have a little anecdote that I would like to share with you.
I'm in my office one day and I get a phone call from a Father. He says, “Look, I've tried your methods. Most recently, I've spent a great deal of time organizing my case. I've followed the ideas in your system. I've been writing up detailed pleadings ‘til I'm blue in the face. I've followed your examples perfectly and I'm still getting screwed. "
This is not a good call
So I've got to ask questions. Turns out this guy is going through a divorce and owns his business, making a good deal of income. I said, “Okay, are there court orders in the case yet?" He said, “Yes, I went to court with my attorney and the judge didn't read a word of what I wrote. She got everything. "
I said, “Okay, what can you tell me about the hearing. What type of hearing was it?" He said, “It was a hearing on a restraining order in which she made false allegations - all lies!" I said, “Ok, you need to understand that at a restraining order hearing the judge's job is to, basically, separate the parties and make certain he's not going to see them back in court again on these issues. "
I went on to say that, “You need to understand that this sort of hearing is at the infancy stages of the case and that the resulting order is merely a “band-aid". There are many things still left to do to change matters radically!"
You don't know how many Father's figure they're screwed even at this initial stage. They really don't pursue anything much further and become filled with self-doubt because they don't know all the “legal-ese". Even their attorney's help perpetuate the myth that there's not much else you can do. This is why you must absolutely be involved in your case and directing traffic!
And for this you must present the strongest case you possibly can! Use every “trick" in your book, and one of the strongest assets you have is your extreme involvement and expertise about your case and your life. Make it emotional, but compelling. Don't go up in front of the judge and complain, but be as persuasive as you can be. This will make you stand out against your “X" and her lawyer, who will most likely be “by-the-book" and boring.
Don't be afraid to be emotional!
