Fighting For Your Children: A Father's Guide to Custody

Fighting For Your Children: A Father's Guide to Custody

By John Steinbreder and Richard G. Kent,ESQ

Attention all fathers! As divorce is becoming more common, so is the issue of child custody. What’s worse is the discrimination against fathers in many child custody cases, and the perception that mothers always make better parents.

Fighting for Your Children, by John Steinbreder and Richard G. Kent, informs fathers facing a child custody battle about the legal system that is often tilted unfairly against them. Using anecdotes from fathers who have gained full or joint custody, as well as comments from fathers who have met with failure, this necessary guide is filled with helpful advice including:

  • understanding and circumventing current biases in the legal system;
  • devising solid courtroom strategy;
  • creating a fair and workable visitation solution; and
  • thoughts on how the system can be changed to work more fairly for both men and women in the future.

Fighting for Your Children gives fathers a chance to fight back by offering ways to prepare for the technical and emotional difficulties that lie ahead and providing personal accounts from fathers who have successfully gained custody of their children.
