When I started this blog, the idea was to use sports to explain family law. I quickly found out that the most common problem athletes run into is not paying child support (hey they are just regular folks after all). There were only so many times I can say "Dude, pay your child support." So the blog kinda faltered. Okay died like the Broncos offense when faced with the Seahawks D in the Super Bowl. Definitely not pretty.
I also found myself tweeting a lot about stuff I saw in family law that day at the courthouse or heard about or just thought of. A lot of that stuff does not really explain well in 140 characters.
Combining these two things made me realize its time to relaunch this blog. Same name, new focus. I am just going to talk about family law issues in good plain English so someone who is dealing with the court system for the first time can understand it. Understand it enough to work with their attorney to achieve a realistic result. What I post here is not legal advice, might not apply to a particular situation faced by a reader and quite, frankly, should not be relied on solely in court. Family law is emotional. You need an attorney to help you deal with the legal stuff, so you don't have to deal with it and the emotional stuff too.
Obviously sports will still creep in. It can't be helped. That's who I am. Even my non-sports liking clients get sports metaphors.
Hope you enjoy the new focus. Feel free to comment often.
