Overview

How to Be a Good Divorced Dad

This must-have resource presents essential advice for divorced or divorcing dads of any age, background, and marriage history. Written by Jeffery M. Leving, the country's leading authority on fathers' rights, the book is filled with practical ideas for staying connected with children and dealing with ex-wives—and in some cases a new girlfriend or the wife's new boyfriend—during the divorce and afterward.

Throughout the book you'll find advice and stories that show how other dads have coped successfully with divorce and made a difference in their children's lives. How to Be a Good Divorced Dad offers good news for divorced dads and counters many of the myths that paint divorcing fathers as alienated, irresponsible, or absent.

Praise for How to Be a Good Divorced Dad

"Leving has given us a positive and constructive child-oriented book for dads that . . . offers strategies and concrete tips (in age-appropriate formats) to help divorced dads parent their children effectively. How to Be a Good Divorced Dad should be read by every parent going through a divorce, and professionals should provide this book as a resource to their clients as early as possible in the divorce process."
Forrest (Woody) Mosten, collaborative lawyer and mediator, Los Angeles, and author of The Collaborative Divorce Handbook

"[Jeffery Leving] not only nails the importance and the why of being good divorced dads but also gives us the how and what we can do to turn a 'bad circumstance' into a positive one for the people that matter the most in our lives, our children."
Neli Vazquez-Rowland, president, A Safe Haven Foundation

"Jeffery Leving is this nation's founding and leading advocate for fathers in family law. This book provides divorced and separated dads with real-world advice and guidance that has been hard-earned by thousands of cases. Everyone knows a dad who can benefit by reading this book."
James Hagler, matrimonial attorney

"Jeffery Leving has given divorced dads a step-by-step game plan on how to secure the proper relationship with their children."
Gordon Bell, running back, New York Giants, 1976-1977; St. Louis Cardinals, 1978
