Publisher's Summary

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.

Avoid outside the US

This is not a book about how to be a good divorced dad, but about how to best navigate the American, adversarial legal system as a divorcing and divorced dad.

Great advice! Every divorced dad should read!

I thought it was very well thought out. It was very calming and reassuring without giving false hope. Addressed many of the questions I had. Very adamant about doing things focused on the children's well being.

I Couldn't Take It Anymore

Between the narrator sounding like a Texas Instruments computer and the preachiness of the author I HAD to stop this after four chapters. Might be the worst thing I've read/listened to in years.
