Overview

This book reveals what many family law attorneys would rather you didn’t know: that you can end your custody battle without giving in, giving up or going broke. It contains insider tips that will show you how you can save thousands of dollars, improve your relationship with your kids, sleep better at night, and put the family law courts behind you. Drawing upon years of experience as a mediator, shared-custody educator, and therapist specializing in separation and divorce, Mr. Desjardins introduces parents, step parents, and grandparents, to the tools that millions of people around the globe are using to resolve their child-custody problems. If you are recently separated or divorced and want to avoid getting into a custody dispute in the first place, this book will help you do just that. If you are already in a custody battle and have tried everything you can think of to help the kids “win”, but have failed, this book is for you. All of the proceeds from this book are being donated to the non-profit International Center for Peaceful Shared Custody in support of its goal of building a global community of parents helping parents through separation and divorce. “With an easy-to-read writing style, Mr. Desjardins makes a convincing case for “winning” a decent parenting arrangement after a divorce. I’m a family law attorney who agrees completely with his strategy.” -Bill Eddy, LCSW, CFLS, Attorney, Mediator, & author of High Conflict People in Legal Disputes “This book could save you a bundle in attorney's fees--enough to send your kids to Harvard! This book is a must read.” -Dr. Elizabeth Roberts, Child Psychiatrist, & author of Should You Medicate Your Child’s Mind? “If you want to minimize the risk factors for your children during divorce, A New Way to Win should be high on your reading list.” -Forrest S. Mosten, adjunct professor of Law, UCLA, and author of Collaborative Divorce Handbook “A NEW WAY TO WIN is a breath of fresh air in the field of custody mediation. As relationship counselors for 35 years, Kathlyn and I have seen every way imaginable that divorcing parents can do custody disputes painfully. Now, with Tobias Desjardins new book, they have a guidebook and map to make this journey friendlier for all concerned. We recommend A NEW WAY TO WIN highly." -Dr. Kathlyn and Dr. Gay Hendricks, authors of Conscious Loving and Five Wishes “This well-organized and comprehensive book is a consumer’s guide to the alternatives available to parents who want to avoid fighting in court” -Matthew J. Sullivan, Ph.D., parenting coordination expert and author. “Clearly written and process oriented, the book provides an outstanding resource for parents” -John N.
