If you are currently going through a divorce or a custody battle, have you thought about what YOUR best case scenerio would be? How about your worst case scenerio?
Generally, attorneys cannot promise or guarantee an outcome, but they can provide you with insight regarding the most likely best case and worst case scenarios. In addition, attorneys can tell you what the court can and cannot do.
In my opinion, every attorney should advise their clients to understand their own best case and worst case scenario, as well as, what the court can and cannot do. These situations can change throughout the separation process due to new facts that may not have been divulged previously. As such, whenever new information becomes known to you, you should have a conversation with your attorney to determine whether these new facts change your best case or worst case scenarios.
In my experience the clients who visualize the worst case scenario make their current situation easier and also allows them to make more rational decisions, in turn, creating a greater likelihood for settlement to happen.
