NAVIGATING FAMILY COURT
IN THE BEST INTEREST OF YOUR CHILD
Going to court can be scary. Going to court to decide custody of your child can be truly terrifying — there is so much at stake!
If you’re involved in a divorce with children or a child custody case, the better prepared you are, the less stress there will be for you and your child. Navigating Family Court: In the Best Interest of Your Child, written by Rhonda R. Hopkins, a twenty-year veteran within the family court system, will offer the following insights:
*What to Expect When You Go to Court
*What Things a Judge Might Order
*What is Involved in a Custody Evaluation
*What to Do if there are Issues Involving Drug/Alcohol Abuse, Child Abuse/Neglect, or Domestic Violence
*Information on Mediation, Parent Education, and Counseling
*A List of Things You Should Gather for Easy Access
*Tips on Co-Parenting
Please note: Rhonda R. Hopkins is not an attorney. She is not offering any legal advice with this book. She is providing insights from her twenty years as a caseworker within the family court system, the last ten providing custody evaluations and expert testimony in family cases. She believes very strongly that if you are involved in custody and access litigation that you need an attorney to represent you.
