Contentious Custody

Marlene Bizub

The Greatest Fight of Your Life


In child custody cases, parents do not always have their children’s best interests at heart. Parents want what they want. This leads to contentious custody battles. But there is a better way.

Contentious Custody provides a guide to putting the needs of the children at the forefront and how to protect them during divorce. A must read for separating parents, family members of someone going through separation or divorce, and professionals working with separating parents.
