Albert Einstein is credited with saying that Insanity is “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
Whether he said it or not, the premise holds true in family law. If you keep making the same bad decisions you will continue to get the same bad results.
Illegal substance use or alcohol abuse, not paying your Court-Ordered obligations, and ignoring legal proceedings all lead to more trouble, more expenses and bad results.
So what can you do? STOP.
Stop using illegal drugs. Stop drinking alcohol. Get help. It’s out there and worth it. Start paying your Court-Ordered support. At least pay something. Stop ignoring your lawyer. Stop ignoring the legal process. Judges love a comeback story.
