About the Author

Anne P. Mitchell is a nationally recognized fathers’ rights attorney and spokesperson. One of the first fathers’ rights lawyers in the country, with more than 20 years experience in fathers’ rights, Anne has been invited to speak and consult about fathers’ rights issues with judges, state legislators, social workers, and family court workers. Her DadsRights.org website is one of the top fathers’ rights sites on the Internet, and more than 12,000 fathers have benefitted from the material and advice that is now available to the public in this book. Mitchell, a graduate of Stanford Law School, had been involved in fathers' rights even before going to law school, and upon being admitted to the bar opened a private fathers' rights law practice in which she represented fathers only, advocating for their relationship with their children. At the same time, she became an oft-invited guest on the speaking and lecture circuit, including being asked by California Governor Pete Wilson to speak at his "Focus on Father's" Summit, being invited to speak on fathers' rights at the "Beyond the Bench" judicial education conference, and even making a guest appearance on the Leeza show. No longer in private practice, Mitchell maintains the DadsRights.org and DearEsq.com legal websites, where the public can find resources and ask questions related to family law.

More About the Author

Anne P. Mitchell is a graduate of Stanford Law School, and is both one of the first anti-spam and Internet public policy attorneys, and, previously, one of the first and only fathers rights attorneys in the United States.

"I guess you could say that I am a champion for under-represented causes," explains Mitchell.

Currently the CEO of the Institute for Social Internet Public Policy, Mitchell still maintains a strong fathers' rights presence through her website, DadsRights.org, through her writing (such as her book, "Surviving Divorce and Custody: The Single Father's Guide), and through her teaching.

In addition to writing about fathers rights and family law, Anne authored one of the first ebooks on email deliverability, and is widely published on issues relating to public policy in both the fathers and childrens' rights arena, and the Internet policy realm.

In her spare time, Anne maintains the Internet news site, The Internet Patrol, which currently has 15,000 readers, and which is published every weekday, with a weekly digest on Fridays.

Anne lives with her husband, son, 2 cats, 1 dog, and 2 goats, in Boulder, Colorado. The goats have their own Twitter account (Twitter.com/GoatsInCats) and so does Anne (Twitter.com/AnnePMitchell).

She is an expert in this area and it shows in her thoroughness, organization and well thought out explanations. I have referred several people to this book, but not all of them men! I believe it should be required reading for mom's as well. The whole point is looking at things from other's perspectives, especially the children, but mom should understand how it all affects the one they are disaffected from! Mitchell has done a big service here, not just for dads but for whole families.

As a mom I read this book because I strongly believe in supporting dads in the family court system. It takes maturity and respect in order to put aside differences and focus on the well being of the children. Ms. Mitchell gives single dads the resources they need to make pragmatic decisions. The chapters are conveniently arranged to allow dads to quickly find the information they are looking for. This book will help a single dad sort through all the conflicts that may arise during divorce or separation. It provides the tools dads need to assert themselves to ensure they protect their rights as well as the rights of their children.

I started reading this book thinking it might be of value to some friends of mine who are going through a divorce. As it turned out, I found it very helpful to me, a happily married man - as a stark reminder of how precious what I have is, and how diligent I must be to protect and nurture it.

For someone going through the throes of a painful divorce, a dad staring at the scary reality of being edged out of his children's lives, this short and simple guide written by a lawyer who sticks up for father's rights will come as welcome relief and succour.

Knowledge is power. Information that's reliable, trustworthy and backed by experience is precious. That's what makes this book so very special to fathers going through divorce. The extensive list of resources, classified by State, and the checklists for action to take for each scenario, are precious data for troubled fathers.

By the time you've finished reading "They're Your Kids Too", not only will you have the knowledge you need to go through the divorce process more confidently, but also a road map to help you continue being a father to your children - one they will cherish, remember and respect... because you did the right thing.

Format: Paperback
This book provides solid insights from an experienced attorney and fathers' rights advocate about what could go horribly wrong with divorces involving kids. Fortunately, this mostly made me feel better about my own situation as a divorced parent not having to deal with the horrible situations outlined in the book.

The first chapter, which reminds us to put the kids first, applies to everyone. The remaining chapters serve as a reminder that things can get ugly at any time, during or after the divorce, and provide valuable information if you're unfortunate enough to be living through them.

This is a sad topic, but an important one. Thankfully there are people like Anne who are there on the side of fathers.

As a recently divorced father I can write that this is an invaluable book. Not enough people are aware of the trauma that fathers suffer during this very difficult time, and I would recommend this guide to anyone like myself who went into their divorce without preparing as well as they could. The ideas and resources here can really help to reduce the terrible stress and give you more hope , in addition to improving your understanding of the law.

This book is wonderfully organized so you can quickly devour the sections relevant to your situation. But read it all anyway because it's better to be prepared for the worst than react too late. The parts you don't need will still make you feel fortunate that your situation isn't as bad as it could have been.

No matter how peaceful your divorce, you'll find yourself returning to chapter 1 ("7 Steps to Ensure Well-Adjusted Kids After Divorce") over and over. I was lucky enough to read the first edition of this book in time to help with my divorce and single fatherhood. I returned to this chapter often to re-inspire me to take the best long-term actions for my son, and not the ones that might be the easiest at the time. Soon it becomes second nature and your child(ren) will be better off for your efforts.

While I have been lucky enough to not be in this position myself, I have friends who weren't so lucky. They really could have benefited from the information Mitchell provides here.
Frankly, this book has great advice for all parents, moms or dads, and even friends of couples in several areas. For me I think when it comes to recognizing the signs of parental alienation - what to do about, and what hit home for me as a parent - how to avoid it, this book becomes a book for anyone who has kids or is around them.
How we talk about our spouses, kids' parents, anywhere, is important and shapes how others see them and their relationships. Excellent advice. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
A unique and valuable perspective on the issues surrounding divorce and custody. As a fathers' rights attorney, Anne Mitchell understands better than most how the family law system works -- and how it does not. The author's advice to acknowledge that kids need a relationship with both parents after a divorce, and her admonition to never speak badly about the parent are excellent starting points. But her treatment of issues such as false allegations of abuse, parental kidnapping, and parental alienation are what makes this book essential reading for every father dealing with divorce and custody. Many fathers assume that mothers hold all the cards in a custody battle, but Mitchell's book shows them how to advocate for themselves and their children.
