First of all, make sure that you’re involved with your child’s activities, with your child’s life. I’m assuming by the client even asking me that question that they’re already involved. I also tell people make sure you document things that happen, keep a calendar, keep a log, keep a diary, which is so easy these days to do digitally and I think that it’s a very important planning tool. Also, make sure you photograph or video tape everything because there’s so many easy ways to do that these days that it’s very simple for us to get together a PowerPoint or slide presentation to the judge to show what normal day in the life is for this father and their child.
