What Mom’s Think About Custody Bootcamp


How to get child custody with or without an attorney.

At the end of the day, are you comfortable putting the safety and well being of your children in someone else’s hands?

When you hire an attorney to represent you in your custody case, that’s exactly what you’re doing, and it’s pretty terrifying.

Even worse still is the feeling that there is no one out there to help you look out for the future of your children. For many moms, who can’t afford an attorney, this feeling is with them day and night. For moms who can afford an attorney, they still wonder whether the attorney really cares, will really fight, and will really be able to make the difference when it matters.

When you’re fighting for custody of your children, you don’t want to feel alone. You don’t want to feel clueless, unsupported, or hopeless. If you had a choice about how you’d feel on the day you walked into the courtroom, you would probably say that you’d like to feel confident, prepared, and informed about what to expect.

Custody cases are complicated, and full of tricks and dead ends. One misstep, and you could seriously jeopardize your case–and, by extension, your children’s entire future. You really only have one shot to make a good impression on the judge and the guardian ad litem, so it’s critically important to be as prepared as possible.

But how? How do you prepare yourself to face the unknown, whether or not you’ve been able to hire an attorney to represent you in your custody case?

Custody Bootcamp for Moms is an intense, all day seminar on custody cases in Virginia, taught by Kristen Hofheimer. At Custody Bootcamp, you’ll learn all about how to represent yourself in a custody case in the Virginia juvenile and domestic relations court, including how to prepare a trial notebook, what to wear, when to sit and stand, how to question and cross examine witnesses, how to build your custody case around the ten critical custody factors that the judge must consider, how to get your evidence in and keep his out, and how to give a killer opening and closing argument. Short of going to law school, there’s no quicker, easier way to learn everything you need to know about custody cases in Virginia!

Already have an attorney? There’s no better way to check up on him and the choices he’s making than by attending Custody Bootcamp for Moms!
