Manage episode 324619992 series 3103645
The Stranger In The Black Robe. There is a pervasive cultural myth that leads us to believe that once we have the "opportunity" to tell our side of the story in family court, we will somehow be able to convince the judge to rule in our "favor". It's a myth for a reason. In family court, the burden of proof is often insurmountable and based on narrow, self-serving perspectives. But, in this bonus episode, we present another view, the one from the bench. You'll hear the wise words of the Honorable Paul W. Garfinkel as he implores parents to understand that child custody rulings are really "judgment day for children". They have to live with the sentences handed down. Listen in to learn three ways to avoid the agonizing pitfalls of separation and truly put your children first.
