Product details

Children are the central focus in any custody case. Frequently, however, parents, lawyers, and even judges, lose sight of this. Opinions are evolving about how to keep the child as the case’s focus. One such opinion believes a child's voice should play a key role in any custodial arrangement. This opens a wide range of questions and concerns: why should we listen to a child, what potential concerns exist when listening to them, and how do we solicit their opinions? This book is written providing a framework for addressing those questions and providing the most productive answers.
