Be sure to coordinate your efforts with your lawyer to make sure you are
being effective. Generally speaking, the more organized you are, the more
help you are to your lawyer. Organizing your thoughts about what you want
from the court and the facts supporting why you should get it can be very
helpful. Also, gathering and organizing financial records can make your
lawyer’s life easier and save you money. Keeping a journal of your
interactions with the children is a helpful task in a custody case.
