Burden of Proof

Lack of documentation kills many a case.  On child support cases, lack of proof of payment has resulted in parties having to pay twice because the opposing party alleged payments were not made and the other party has no proof otherwise.  I tell clients many times that documentation of anything you are alleging against an opposing party is helpful.  Otherwise, a court proceeding turns into nothing more than a glorified swearing match with the judge having to pick one parties'  version of events.
