What All Parents Need to Know to Protect Their Children From the Ravages of Divorce and Custody Battles

The Ultimate Evidence to Submit In Your Child Custody Case
From a World Class Expert Witness and Author

Dear Parent,

Most judges and helping professionals know children of divorce do better when raised by both parents. However, when a mom feels “it would be best for my children to live with me,” even professionals assume she knows best, and miss cues that reveal her resistance to genuine shared parenting (such as saying “my children”).

Why is mom’s resistance to genuine shared parenting so easily missed? Because the understanding of the value of dad runs so shallow and because this massive system does what is easiest and most profitable for it.   My 13 years of research which generated the book Father and Child Reunion, changes that. It creates such depth of understanding about the value of dad that it shocks even dads. For example, did you know that children raised primarily by dads do better than children raised primarily by moms? Neither does your attorney. Or your judge.

  More importantly, this research will help you understand why dads are so crucial. For example, the more exposure to dad, the more empathetic your children are likely to be. Do you know why?   Informed passion can inspire the right attorney and judge too. Dr. Farrell's research is likely to move the judge to prioritize shared parenting.   However, an attorney appreciates this information in the form it will be given in court too.

After thirteen years of research Dr. Farrell produced a DVD, called In the Best Interests of the Child, that leads the attorney to the key questions to educate a judge as to why anything less than a dad’s equal involvement is putting the child at risk. At risk of everything from ADD to drugs, delinquency, depression, low self-esteem, teenage pregnancy, self-centeredness, poor social development, and underachievement in every academic area.

  The practical result? Although this video is new judges in several states, who have not previously been inclined to equal father involvement, have already become committed to it.

  Best Regards,

Dr. Warren Farrell, Author Father and Child Reunion

How to Save Our Children When We Can't Save our Marriage

An In-Depth Dialogue with
Dr. Warren Farrell Author,
Father and Child Reunion, The largest meta study ever done on what is best for children of divorce.Dr. Farrell may be the top expert on teh state-of-the-art on what the true "best interest of the child" is today.

For years we had theories. Now we have real answers. Answers based on tens of thousands of real-life experiences and hard scientific evidence collected over 20 years. This is not about theories and highly charged emotions typical in divorce courts - is is hard science.


"Dr. Warren Farrell is the greatest expert on the importance of fathers. His DVD, The Best Interests of the Child, is incredible. Just incredible. it is chock-filled with insights and information. It is priceless."

Steve Ashley, Director of Divorced Fathers Network and Radio Show, Santa Cruz, CA.

Imagine hiring one of the world's top minds to spend years to discover the best research, analyze it, and in two hours, answer all these questions for you:

  • What three conditions must prevail if your child is to have the best chance of doing well psychologically, socially, academically and physically?
  • Is an excellent stepparent as good or better than-- a so-so biological parent?
  • If one parent has a job opportunity that will allow for the child to be in a nicer home and better school district, but it is across the country from the other parent, will moving be helpful to the child?
  • If your child can be in a new intact family that's peaceful and loving, but at a distance from a biological parent, is that better than being shuttled back-and-forth from mom to dad?
  • Are there certain advantages to your child being brought up primarily by mom, or primarily by dad? Does it make a difference if that child is a boy or a girl?
  • In high-conflict situations can shared parenting work for the child? If not, should the child be with the parent with whom the child has been living, or are there more important considerations?
  • How far apart is optimum for parents to live?
  • At what age should a child's parental preference be important? Which explanations for preference are actually signs the child should have more time with the other parent?
  • How important is overnight time with the child?

Submit this as evidence at your trial using our complete evidence kit. This science practically requires judge's who are working under the "best interest of the child" doctrine to award joint custody and shared parenting when there are two good parents. Anything else would be ridiculous unless there is an unfit parent.Dr. Farrell is also available as an expert witness.

  • Debunk that sole custody or mother custody is best for children - IT'S NOT!
  • Avoid Parental Alienation Syndrome developing
  • Results are from over 200 carefully evaluated scientific studies
  • Put your judge on the spot for any biased and sexist custody orders driven by tradition, not science and evidence
  • Judges MUST legally rule on the facts, evidence and the law, not any personal bias - But you must put the facts into evidence. Your lawyer may not.

More Background on Dr. Farrell

Dr. Farrell is the author of the book Father and Child Reunion. The goal of Father and Child Reunion was to determine what is best for children of divorce. Dr. Farrell's findings are based on an analysis of the most significant studies world-wide. The result, Father and Child Reunion, is the most extensive recent analysis in book form of what is really in the best interests of children.

Although Dr. Farrell has trained psychologists for thirty years, he as looks at the family from every perspective. For example, he has been selected by The Financial Times as one of the top 100 Thought Leaders in the world, and has also taught in five disciplines (most recently, the School of Medicine at the University of California in San Diego). Warren Farrell's most recent book--Why Men Earn More-- is on family finances and economics. Why Men Earn More was chosen by U.S. News and World Report as one of the top four career books to be read in 2006.

Dr. Farrell can communicate complex ideas very simply, which is why he has appeared repeatedly on Oprah and on 1,000 other TV and radio shows worldwide, and doubtless why two of his books-- Why Men Are The Way They Are and The Myth of Male Power --became international best sellers. Finally, his Women Can't Hear What Men Don't Say teaches everyone in the family how to communicate.

No matter what your perspective or background, you will be fascinated with how Dr. Farrell brings child development, parenting and communications together in a way that is both so new and so sensible. Maybe that's because his research is also grounded in his real-life experience with his wife and two teenage daughters. It is only when all this is considered that we know what is best for our children.
