When domestic abuse and children are involved, divorce and custody can be the epitome of high-stakes conflict and frustration and all too frequently protective parents lose custody of their child to a named abuser. Domestic Abuse, Child Custody, and Visitation helps mental health professionals, attorneys, and lay readers navigate the judicial process so that decisions are truly made in the best interest of children. The text reveals how all the puzzle pieces of the judicial process fit together - judges, attorneys, mental health experts, children, spouses - and how to overcome many of the obstacles they will confront along the way. This runs the gamut, from the selelection of a lawyer and experts, to setting necessary groundwork for an appeal. Domestic Abuse, Child Custody, and Visitation is an essential read for mental health professionals and lay people involved in divorce and custody, family court judges, family law attorneys, and mental health professionals involved in domestic abuse and custody matters.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"In this courageous expose of the family court legal arena, Toby Kleinman and Daniel
Pollack combine their decades of study and practice to craft a powerful book, one that
provides cutting-edge, authoritative guidance to lawyers representing battered women
in child custody litigation involving an abusive ex-partner. Equally important as its sage
legal advice is its profound validation of the harrowing experiences facing battered women
forced to navigate a hostile legal landscape as they try to protect themselves and their
children. The book is a must-read for legal and other professionals involved in these cases,
and it ought to be given as a gift to every woman facing child custody litigation." --Mo Therese Hannah, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Siena College; Licensed Psychologist


"Toby Kleinman and Daniel Pollack have provided THE roadmap in litigating childcustody
cases where domestic violence is present! Their book - particularly their
explanation of the 'Great Judicial Fallacy' - should be required reading for all who are
engaged in the judicial process involving these cases: lawyers, mental-health professionals, custody evaluators, and especially judges. If you are one of those professionals, then do
yourself - and the children you are charged to help protect - a favor and read this book!" --Paul Griffin, JD, Legal Director, Child Justice, Inc.


"Toby Kleinman and Daniel Pollack have given us the missing piece of the puzzle for child
custody cases in the U.S. Courts. Calling out the lack of protection for children, especially
for those subjected to homes where domestic violence reigns, they provide desperately
needed strategies to protect them. No one, not a professional nor a consumer, should step
one foot into family court without reading this fantastic book." --Lenore Walker, EdD, MS, Professor, College of Psychology, Nova Southeastern University


"Toby Kleinman is a leading expert on representing abused parents and children in custody
litigation. This book clearly and eloquently explains the realities of custody litigation and
translates what some have called the 'oz-like' quality of such cases into terms anyone can
understand. Most importantly, she conveys the ways abuse in the family impacts every
family member and, most of all, court personnel, who need to know what is in this book
in order to avoid being snowed into not protecting at-risk children." --Joan S. Meier, JD, Professor of Clinical Law, George Washington University Law School; Founder and Legal Director Domestic Violence Legal Empowerment and Appeals Project (DV LEAP)


"For family law attorneys, this book offers a glimpse of how important their work can be. It also explains why domestic abuse survivors leaving this family dynamic need to be treated with sensitivity, patience, and understanding. This book is a must-read for those in the mental health field working with domestic abuse survivors engaged in family court matters, and for attorneys practicing in, or wanting to practice in, family law." --CHOICE


"Domestic Abuse, Child Custody, and Visitation shouts collaboration and consultation from beginning to end....Within the contents f this book lie realistic insights into the relationship cycle via victim chronology, cycle of violence, and power and control wheels. The textbook clearly demonstrates...the necessity of relationship enhancement between social workers, attorney, s judges, and the court system."
-The New Social Worker
