The article by Bill Eddy on "Negotiation" is actually very helpful. Thank you Baldclub for sharing this. I have to start focusing on what "I" can do instead of focusing on what he is doing or not doing. A good starting point is "listening" to his concerns. He may not express them well but I am going to have take them on board in any response to his position. In the end, it will be far better that these concerns are recognized and addressed by me before he even stands up and starts his "poor me" card.

In respect to negative advocacy, I think there is no excuse for not filing materials in line with the Family Law Rules. Pretending that you did not get the materials might get you off once, but if you are repeating the same excuse over and over again, then it could be seen as a delay tactic. Or worse.
