At the Law Office of Christine M. Mire, we pay special attention to the legal needs of our clients but remain ever mindful of the most important part of custody litigation—the best interest of children.
While Christine’s clients are grateful for her advocacy. The following testimonial of a now adult child of divorce exemplifies who the firm is and the kind of advocacy they provide in giving a voice to clients and the children caught in the middle of contentious custody litigation.
Testimonial of a Child of Divorce
Everyone needs an advocate and I am so thankful that Ms. Christine was mine. Today, as a young adult, I often reflect on the past and contemplate how different my life would be if the events of my childhood had unfolded differently. I am incredibly thankful that my dad had Ms. Christine as his lawyer because she was instrumental in helping me through a pivotal and very trying time in my life.
Divorce is inherently a time fraught with uncertainty, and as a child it can be especially difficult to find any semblance of normalcy. My parents separated when I was 12 years old and it was a very challenging time for my sister and me. At the start of my parent’s divorce I lived primarily with my mother who was emotionally abusive and manipulative, unbeknownst to anyone but my sister and myself. I often struggled to find anyone who understood what I was going through. While I had many friends whose parents were divorced, every situation is different, so I often struggled to express my feelings and relate to my peers. But thankfully Ms. Christine had the intuition to know something was wrong, and she had skills to help get me into the healthy and stable environment living with my dad where I lead a normal life and progressed academically and socially.
I was a kid, but all I wanted was to be heard. I often felt that my voice was overshadowed by others, but Ms. Christine heard me, and she made sure that my voice was heard by others. I needed someone to believe me and Ms. Christine did. I needed an advocate, and I am so thankful that Ms. Christine was mine.
