What Every Woman Should Know About Divorce and Child Custody: Must-read for women. Corona Del Mar Private Investigator Services

While speaking with Bonnie Kaye during her weekly Straight Wives Talk Show, Bonnie mentioned a book she was reading titled, What Every Woman Should Know About Divorce and Child Custody. The book was written by prominent family law attorney Gayle Rosenwald Smith, J.D. and freelance writer and editor Sally Abrahms.

Although it was originally published back in 2007, it has been recently updated because the culture of divorce and child custody is always changing.  In fact, it is exactly this transient climate that makes this book a recommended read for women with children who are going through a divorce, or who are considering filing for divorce form their spouse. The days of assuming the women will get custody of the kids are over, and women need to be prepared in order to put their best foot forward in the courtroom.

The newest version includes information regarding technology and its potential pitfalls, as well as interstate divorce and child custody laws.

Want to win child custody? Then always take the high road.

If there is one sentiment that would sum up what women should do in terms of winning child custody it is to always take the high road. If there is any question regarding: Will doing XXX affect my custody case? Will associating with XXX affect the outcome of my custody battle? The answer is to assume that everything you do, say, and experience can affect the outcome of your case, and not necessarily in your favor. For example:

  • Don't let your boyfriend stay the night when you have custody of the children.
  • Don't go on vacation with your boyfriend and especially not without the children.
  • Don't leave scathing voicemails, texts, or emails for your ex - they can and will be used against you in court.
  • Never bad-mouth your ex in front of the children.

Unfortunately, you may need to put your personal life completely on hold while your divorce and child custody settlement is being finalized. Until then, all of your actions and motives are suspect. A book like this can help women chart their own course and have a more active role in determining the outcome of their case.

A Child Custody Private Investigator can help your child custody case

One aspect we were particularly happy about was that in her book, Ms. Smith discusses how a child custody private investigator can benefit parents as they move through the child custody system. From surveillance services, to background checks and asset searches, the evidence a private investigator turns up can help to keep a case from perpetuating indefinitely, and from becoming a "he said/she said" debaucle.
