Journaling for Effective Litigation

On Behalf of | Nov 6, 2012 | Uncategorized |

When experiencing a divorce, child custody fight, contempt or any other matter that may end up in court the importance of journaling or documenting important events as they happen cannot be understated. Some people do not feel that they need to write things down because they believe the matter will be resolved and legal action will not be necessary. While this would be the ideal resolution, often this is not the case.

Others feel that the event is so important or shocking that they will remember it, but memories often fade or change. In contrast, some occurrences may appear too menial, but when all instances are accounted for, the small things can start to add up into a larger issue. If you have not been journaling important events as they have taken place in your marriage, while co-parenting, or when other contentious situations happen then you should begin to do so immediately. It can help you in court and also assist your attorney with preparing the strongest possible case for you. The more specific and detailed you can be with an instance’s descriptions and facts the more favorable it will be to your case.
