Overview

With the divorce rate above 50 percent and climbing, more and more parents are faced with difficult situations involving their children. This book is designed to let parents know their legal rights and to help them understand the court system.

Most parents think that once a decree for support has been ordered, that all is over. However, often that is just the beginning. Getting the support that was mandated, in the amount that was stated, in the manner that was determined necessary and in the time indicated are often major issues that must be continually confronted for the good of the children.

In addition to covering all of the basics, Your Right to Child Custody, Visitation and Support also examines current hot topics such as parental kidnapping, child support enforcement and when one of the parents is in the armed forces. Easy-to-use, blank tear-out forms makes this new edition a must for every person who has children and has gone through or is contemplating a divorce.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Self-help books like attorney Boland's are a mainstay of many libraries because of the unique information they offer. Boland addresses parents frustrated in their efforts to secure child custody and visitation rights. In a well-organized text, she describes all the legal issues affecting the balance between the rights of parents and those of the child. Problems such as child kidnapping, financial support, and determining custody are discussed, and the author describes how child custody and visitation cases should be prepared and provides examples of various legal forms to help parents with their cases. An appendix offers a state-by-state summary of laws applicable to custody and child support. Though not an easy read for a self-help book, this work does contain important information to help prepare parents facing their own unique custody and visitation issues. Recommended for all public libraries.--Patrick Mahoney, Kansas City P.L., KS Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
