This book makes the case for two-parent involvement in child-rearing, even after separation and divorce, and analyzes the crisis in family law in the United States. Beginning chapters discuss children as victims of divorce, the denial of access for the non-custodial parent, abuse of child abuse laws, and strategies for implementing legal reform in divorce-related areas. A case for the joint custody of children is made, and the parenting problems faced by parents post-divorce are described. Chapter 4 presents reasons parents should enter into parenting agreements and outlines issues that should be addressed in parenting agreements. The following chapter analyzes key considerations that should be reviewed when looking at current or proposed child-support policies. A transcript of an interview with Elizabeth McGonagle, Director of Banana Splits, a program that helps children of divorced families in the Ballston Spa, New York school system is provided in the final chapter. 166 references.
