Review:

"This solid, well-written, and comprehensive book is aimed at the gamut of divorce professionals, policymakers, and the public interested in getting educated about the entire contemporary custody domain.

"Provides valuable background information for any parent and legal or mental health professional interested in this unique area of law....Well written and provides an excellent review of issues related to the functioning of child-custody courts. In addition, important suggestions for change are made....A great starting place for thinking about change in the child custody courts." Contemporary Psychology
