Positive advice for divorced dads and their families

The country's leading authority on fathers' rights Jeffery M. Leving presents a definitive how-to resource for divorced dads of any age, background, and marriage history. Leving offers targeted guidance and suggests techniques for staying connected with children and dealing with ex-wives—and in some cases a new girlfriend or the wife's new boyfriend—during the divorce and afterwards. This upbeat book offers good news for divorced dads and counters many of the myths that paint divorcing fathers as alienated, irresponsible, or absent.

Includes advice for overcoming limited access to children with cooperative responses and legal remedies if necessary
Reveals how to avoid depression and feelings of guilt that can cause a divorced dad to give up and lose connection with his kids
Offers ideas for responding to an ex-wife's remarriage, moving, unfounded accusations, and other common issues
Contains guidance for engaging in new relationships and possibly remarriage

How to Be a Good Divorced Dad is practical and down-to-earth and offers dozens of real life examples of dads who have discovered the importance of staying involved in their children's lives.
