Clients often ask us for practical advice about how to write emails to their coparent. Parents may be concerned about how to pose things from a legal perspective (Example: Will it hurt my case if I say this?), but generally their main concern is how the information will be received by or responded to by their coparent. Parents want to be sure that the tone and content of their message comes through, without causing defensiveness or a negative reaction from the other parent.

In this video interview, Owner/Lead Attorney Jill Brittle spoke with Lisa Gabardi, PhD, who offers advice on how to keep communication focused on the children, without devolving into blaming or making demands. Learn more tips in the video below.
