Local author brings stress of child custody dispute into words

Connecticut residents are among the many Americans that enjoy a good book, especially if the read pertains to their personal life in some way. Whether a book is fiction or nonfiction, it can often be helpful for readers to feel as if the author truly understands their specific set of circumstances. Recently, one local author penned a novel to explain the stress and pain that can result from a child custody dispute.

He told interviewers that because of his own nasty child custody dispute, he was attempting to explain what that type of situation is really like on a personal level to the reader. The book is entitled "Half the Child." Through the eyes of the fictional main character, readers can see many of the issues that affect parents navigating child custody proceedings.

While the book is not about one parent or the other, it does explain how the details of custody disputes can negatively affect all parties involved, including a child. Often, it is not a question of who is a better parent, and courts require things like psychological evaluations and other investigatory options with which families may be unfamiliar. The author, a Connecticut resident, crafts the story to explain how child custody issues can affect many aspects of a parent's life.

Parents who feel overwhelmed with the enormity of the task at hand may feel as if they need some help presenting their side in upcoming child custody proceedings. Whether parents are going to get an order put into place for the first time or are attempting to have an existing order changed, they may feel frightened and unprepared. To avoid undue stress, it can be helpful to seek the assistance of an experienced family law attorney. who can assist parents as they begin the process of navigating child custody proceedings.
