Let’s face it…family lawyers do not see people at their best.

However, some cases are outside even our range of what is “normal.” For instance, there is the client who is suspicious of everybody, including her own lawyer. Or the client who is impulsive and believes that everything is an emergency. Lastly, the client who sticks his head in the sand and is unwilling to admit that his spouse is having an affair, despite ALL evidence to the contrary.

Sometimes we need a professional to help these clients and to help us. Mental health professionals can be an invaluable resource in family law cases, particularly those where one or both parties have a genuine mental health issue. We need to know how to utilize mental health professionals, both in and out of court.
