From time to time, we get requests to discuss pending problems involving actual kids. As the disclaimer indicates, however, I am a mediator and hearing officer so I never give legal advice or discuss actual cases. I am a neutral and I need to keep it that way.

I appreciate the understanding of those who ask questions that I cannot answer because of my independence and impartiality requirements.
