Top Customer Reviews
Dr. Jeremy S. Gaies and Dr. James B. Morris, Jr. have collaborated to provide a book that is a “compact, step-by-step guide for parents who are considering or pursuing divorce.” Rather than a voluminous reference manual, this book is perfect for a weekend read. Curl up with it on the sofa and, by the end of your peruse, you will have a clear understanding of the value of focusing on your children throughout the divorce process; from the decision about whether to engage in a trial separation or to jump into divorce proceedings to how to tell your children; from choosing a positive approach to the dissolution of your marriage to drafting a child-oriented parenting plan. The style of writing is engaging, the approach is supportive and instructive, and the authors offer multiple practical ideas for how parents can manage the series of decisions and tasks that the divorce process brings with it. Read it and feel that the light has dawned, the path has been revealed, and the Force is with you.
It is clear that this book was written by seasoned professionals who understand both the territory of family law and the emotional dynamics of divorce and co-parenting. There is no “touchy-feeliness” to the book, and it recognizes well the role of the attorney as an advocate in the process. This is a book that many family law attorneys and affiliated professionals will want to advise their clients to purchase, and it would not be surprising to see many attorneys distributing copies to all of their clients. First, it gives parents a clear sense right up front about the importance of approaching each step in the divorce process in a child-friendly manner. Second, it is likely that the guidance in this book will make clients easier to work with, as they will be better grounded on custody issues and less anxious about those matters as their case progresses through the necessary phases.
I highly recommend this book as a resource to families approaching the tempest of divorce — and to the attorneys who serve them.
