A Father's Custody Journey Part 3 - Finding Balance with Your Children



This is part 3 of my interview with my client Carlos who recently got equal parenting time and has joint custody of his children. In part 3 I talk with Carlos about finding balance with your children. Carlos, as you will see in this interview, is really a compassionate gentle listener and is very good with his children. He takes the time to really listen to what is going on with them but at the same time balances that with the discipline that all kids need when they take a wrong turn.

A Father's Custody Journey Part 2 - Stepping Up to The Plate



This is part 2 of my interview with my client Carlos, a father who recently got equal parenting time with his children & has joint custody of them.

In part two I talk with Carlos about being a father and actually stepping up to the plate and doing the things that you need to spend more time with the children.

I sat down with Carlos a former client who talks about father's rights, his own custody battle journey & what he has learned along the way.

This is part 2 of an interview I did with a former client of mine who is near and dear to my heart. We just finished up a case and although I only helped him for a little while, his custody battle had been going on for years prior. My client has many ideas especially for fathers who feel hopeless and powerless and think because they were not the primary caretaker, they don’t think they can end up with what they want which is more or even the majority of parenting time with their children.
