The psychological turmoil of a divorce doesn't provide the best mental frame for a man to evaluate his options concerning his children, a situation that prompted family relations attorney Leving and psychologist Dachman to write this comprehensive guide for fathers facing divorce. The book clearly explains such legal concepts as custody and access to a child and explains how courts determine a fair level of child support. Checklists are given to help in the selection of the right attorney. Possible legal strategies are discussed for ending a case as equitably as possible and for what to do when all else fails ("Going to war"). Not simply a legal primer, Fathers' Rights also analyzes a man's stress levels and pinpoints when counseling may be required as well as ways to rebuild the relationship with a child after the divorce is final. Concise yet empathetic, it should provide real support to any man going through divorce.
