I seek to have some legal feedback on writing of materials

Customer Question

I seek to have some legal feedback on writing of materials in Family Law. I am looking to gain insight on how legal personnel, (lawyers, court staff, Judges) read documents, and materials especially affidavits.
My experience has been, some will quickly scan over materials and look for key points and "tone", others will take more time and try to create a Gestalt understanding of the legal picture as it presents.
As the legal system is often times adversarial, it is sometimes a very tricky balance to make objective points in response to allegations, and inaccurate statements against one.
Please give personal view on what has been most effective in terms of writing materials with some bias, and not set an overtone of self interest.
