NAVIGATING FAMILY COURT: IN THE BEST INTEREST OF YOUR CHILD
By Rhonda Hopkins
Going to court can be scary. Going to court to decide custody of your child can be truly terrifying — there is so much at stake! But, the better prepared you are, the less stress there will be for you and your child.
The Navigating Family Court guide will give you a glimpse of what you can expect during Family Court litigation and what will be expected of you. While this book will not offer legal advice (that’s what your attorney is for), it will offer insights from a twenty-year veteran in the field, who has investigated thousands of cases involving child abuse/neglect, and parental custody and access. In this book, you will find:
What to Expect When You Go to Court
What Things a Judge Might Order
What is Involved in a Custody Evaluation
What to Do if there are Issues Involving Drug/Alcohol Abuse, Child Abuse/Neglect, or Domestic Violence
Information on Mediation, Parent Education, and Counseling
A List of Things You Should Gather for Easy Access
Tips on Co-Parenting
While no one can guarantee you’ll be granted primary custody of your child, if you’re involved in family court litigation, this guide will help you prepare yourself and your child for the months ahead.
