Not putting the child down, she claims that I am putting her (ex-wife) down.
Would I be better off to point out the things you just listed or focus on these things not being true or both or something else. Thanjks
Thanks so much. I'm curious how you feel about the following. Last question.
A lawyer I know who says he has never lost a case in 27 years told me to always simply answer, not guilty or not true. He says that if you do that the other party must prove your guilt and you don't need to prove your innocence. But if you reply all most anything else, the burden of proof shifts to you and then you must prove you are not guilty. I think I'm quoting him correctly, how does that sound to you?
