There are few things more detrimental to a divorce proceeding than a very bitter spouse. Judges are experts at picking up the bitterness. Any motion or demand made by the bitter party will be viewed with distrust. Thus, it is very important in a divorce to have control of your emotions – if only to keep the judge on your side.
Speak when you are angry — and you will make the best speech you’ll ever regret. —Laurence J. Peter (1919 – 1988)

Some people might expect a divorce book written by a judge to stress the importance of the judicial system in helping couples reach a just outcome in their divorce. If this is you, then you might be surprised at the advice offered by Judge Robert Duncan in this book.
Judge Duncan tells it like it is. He doesn’t aggrandize himself or the family law system to which he devoted most of his judicial career. For example, on dealing with divorce courts he states, he “saw over and over again that the system stinks.”

A fellow blogger has had 5 parental kidnapping cases this past year alone (!). She blogs on a new GPS tracking “wristwatch” that you can put on your child if you fear kidnapping. This wristwatch has an alarm that goes off if anybody tries to remove it.
I think a lot of times divorce can be like circumcision with a weed whacker.
I taught English in Sichuan for two years before moving to Chicago for law school. It was the most wonderful experience of my life.
Needless to say, I am very worried about the situation in Sichuan. Apart from the current tragedy playing out on TV, I am also worried about Sichuan’s infrastructure in the near future. Once the rescuing is over, the locals will have to rebuild schools, hospitals, bridges and roads.
PARENTAL ALIENATION PART 1 OF 3
There is a lot of controversy about Parental Alienation Syndrome. This is when one parent tries to turn the children against another parent. Some experts claim PAS does not exist. Others claim it is a mental illness.
