Step-by-Step Instructions

DIY-Save Thousands of Dollars

If you are here, it is most likely you cannot co-parent with the other party and you don’t have thousands of dollars to spend. That being said, your case will need to be settled in a Probate Court in your County. A Judge needs to understand the dynamic of your situation so they can rule in your favor.

Litigating child custody matters does not have to include retaining an expensive attorney. While fighting for custody is emotionally draining, with the right tools you can prevail in your court case on your own.

We understand this process may appear to be overwhelming, this is why we created this step-by-step strategy format, as well as instructions for each court form you will need, which will allow you to present your strongest case possible to the court.

Judges make their rulings based on what is in the “Best Interest of the Child.” You must present yourself in the best light possible. We can help you DO IT YOURSELF (DIY)! We provide you with the best strategies and specific links to Court forms you need to present in your Court case.

Strategic Checklist

  • For your day in court, have notes prepared for what you want to say, be sure to summarize everything you do with your child, from waking up to going to bed.
  • Before you begin speaking ask the judge, “If I may your honor?”
  • Do not interrupt the other side when they are speaking.
  • Do not interrupt the judge when he/she is speaking.
  • No outbursts when the other side is lying.
  • Make sure you have all of your evidence which you have gathered from the court strategies supplied here, to present to the judge.

Types of Custody

Understand the four types of custody and which type of arrangement is in the best interest for the child:

Sole legal custody — One parent has the right and responsibility to make major decisions about the child, including ones about education, medical care, religion, and emotional development.

Shared legal custody — Both parents are involved in and responsible for major decisions about the child, including ones about education, medical care, and emotional, moral, and religious development.

Sole physical custody — A child lives with one parent and the other parent has reasonable parenting time, unless the court decides that parenting time wouldn't be in the child’s best interest.

Shared physical custody — A child has periods of living with each parent, so the child has frequent, regular contact with both parents.

Consistent Involvement

Judges want to see that you take ownership of your actions. They do not want to hear excuses or apologies. If you are having issues dealing with stress or anger, contact a therapist. You must be the best parent you can be. This is another area where you need to collect evidence to present to the court...your thereapist's name, how often you see them etc...
