"How can they call this due process?" This has been my question from my early experiences of Family Court setups.
I have always had the impression that within the first few months of my case, the attorney and the judge had essentially arrived at an understanding. It appeared to me that no matter what I did, that understanding drove the case from the beginning to the end. So what does that mean for attorneys? If everything is arranged beforehand, can they truly be thought of as exercising their professional expertise and advocating for their clients diligently as they are required to do?
