How To Stay Sane In A Custody Battle

Internal publication - January 04, 2015

This is a "plain language" document about child custody written internally for a legal organization. It's been updated multiple times over the years as the law has changed. I've included the intro paragraph, and for the full text you may click on the PDF.

"There is a lot of information out there about what a custody process is that gets into all the definitions and legal nitty-gritty involved. I encourage you to read up as much as you can. However, this, is not that. This is a cautionary tale. People often forget the toll that a divorce and a custody battle takes on a child. There is a lot of change involved, and they need their parents to be their constants. To do that, you need to remember that every thing you do and say is being absorbed by your child. Find a way to enter this new chapter with grace, for yourselves and your child. It’s not easy, but it is doable and totally worth it."
