Win Your Child Custody War
The 2011, 13th Edition is Shipping Now
5 out of 5 stars A singular achievement and an amazing resource, Charlotte Hardwick's use of the military metaphor throughout (including a photo of a child in a Marine Corps dress uniform on the cover) is in recognition of two salient facts about custody disputes: they can be psychologically as brutal as war; and the stakes can be extremely high.

We have a large family and, thus far, have had no personal experience with a child custody case. However, over the years, several friends of our family have found themselves involved in one. Other than taking the obvious step of obtaining legal counsel, they really had no idea what to do...and not do. Hardwick wrote this book for them as well as for all others who are ill-prepared and emotionally preoccupied. Not all child custody disputes resemble ³war² but all of them do have profoundly serious implications and consequences. Hence the incalculable value of Hardwickıs assistance when attempting to know what they are, to understand them, and then to proceed." (full review) 03/30/2002 Robert Morris Dallas, Texas
"Win Your Child Custody War, has given me the most amount of knowledge in the least amount of time. I have purchased everything available. The hype the others offered quickly became as obnoxious as a faulty septic tank. All too soon the lack of information did surface and became embarrassing. Embarrassing for the authors for their poor product and embarrassing for me to get so little for my money. A parents attitude toward a book ought to be similar to a gold miners attitude toward gold: get every last bit of value out of it. Custody of your child is to important for inferior products or books. This book is a true collaboration between the author and the reader." Dan (Stonewall) Jackson Austin, TX
This is the most personal review I have ever written, but given the nature of the book, I feel compelled to offer personal confirmation of the value of WIN YOUR CHILD CUSTODY WAR. Surprisingly, I also found a lot of self-forgiveness as I read this book. As I revisited old wounds and previously second-guessed decisions, I found confirmation of my own good decision-making, giving the book a remarkably positive spin for this battle weary, but successful warrior. Very highly recommended. (full review) available at Senior Editor, WordWeaving.com 01/01/02
"A friend recommend the Win Your Child Custody War manual to help me prepare for psychological and home evaluations. I was very skeptical that one book could cover so much information in such detail. Seeing the 10 home studies and psychological evaluations removed a lot of the "fear of the unknown." I have actually enjoyed much of the reading and many of the examples. The 7 detective reports are amazing. Even if I wasn't so emotionally involved I think I could recommend this book as just good reading." 07/07/01 Brook Able Child of Divorce, mother, step-mother. Scottsdale, AZ.
"Win Your Child Custody War has served as an axe and cloak to free me from the sea of frozen indifference of the legal system and shield me from the gale of pain inflicted by the other parent. I needed the safe harbor these words and options afforded me. I highly recommend it to anyone facing these challenges." 05/15/01 Brian Matheaney Loving father of four alienated sons. Brunswick, Maine
"When my attorney told me to buy this book I thought he was abandoning me. I was wrong. Win Your Child Custody War helped me explore the parts of my personality that were charged with emotion every time I had to deal with my ex-wife. I learned the predictability and intricacies of the "dance" she had always suckered me into. Specific techniques and practical strategies that applied directly to my case were easy to employ. It is great to have a product that meets my needs at each level of my challenge." 04/06/01 Donald Goldman Ann Arbor, MI
"Win Your Child Custody War is a deluge of current information that manages to be entertaining. Drawing on expertise born of trial and error of hundreds of parents, amazing research and a storehouse of common sense, this manual helps achieve our long-term, enlightened self interests and warns against short-term relief that vindictive reactions afford. Win Your Child Custody War is a great anger/fear management tool." 04/05/01 Eric Deland Psychologist, Mediator, Trainer & Arbitrator Chicago, Il.
"By definition (persistent worry about oneself and ones children, recurrent, fear of initiating action, fear of continued inaction, distressing dreams that may cause fatigue, muscle tension, inability to concentrate, headache and nausea) a child custody battle is a generalized anxiety disorder. Win Your Child Custody War includes elements of cognitive behavior therapy, which teaches people to change the way they think and behave. This helps them eliminate anxiety by recognizing triggers and learning better ways to deal with them. I have recommended this outstanding tool to my patients with great enthusiasm. Each has reported a sense of control and success." 02/15/01 Robert J. Anderson MA, LPC, LMFT, Long Island N.Y.
"Win Your Child Custody War, is a constant source of ideas for uncovering missed opportunities, poison language and cause-and-effect relationship interactions.

There are dozens of obvious and subtle reasons this information has worked so well." 01/26/01 Jay D. Updike, Washington, DC.
"Everything I knew about family court, I learned from television. It didn't take me long to see that the prevailing mythology I had accepted had me going in the wrong direction. Win Your Child Custody War offers options that helped me deal with the conflicts in a way that had real meaning to me and gave me the knowledge and skills to help me achieve my goals within the limits of my budget and resources." 03/15/01 Allan Picard Father of Three, Atlanta, GA
"Win Your Child Custody War, is the great equalizer that every parent facing litigation should have in their arsenal.

"I am really impressed and proud to have your books in my "custody". I love your books and what you do!" 6/22/99 Jody Seidler, Santa Monica, CA 1999 Makinglemonade.com
"Win Your Child Custody War", is a must read for anyone who is dealing with children now or in the future during a child custody battle. In fact I would even recommend it for someone who has already been there, and is still trying to figure out what hit them, and why. The chapter on how to select and work with an attorney by itself makes this book worth its weight in gold (no small feat, as this is a hefty volume). This chapter should be required reading for ALL parents headed towards a contested custody matter, and for their attorneys as well!" Anne P. Mitchell, Esq., Founder/Director, Fathers Rights and Equality Exchange
"Win Your Child Custody War helped us Tremendously. My family and I purchased your book at the beginning of my son's custody battle for his daughter, who was taken from him by her mother. She left town while pregnant, and gave the baby to an Adoption Agency, without the knowledge or consent of my son (the father).. Your book helped us in many, many ways. Some of the advice that stands out in my mind
,was the little things that made a big difference regarding how your behavior in the court room, like "no whispering", no outbursts, and much more. Your book became our Bible. The law guardian commented after the trial about the dignity of our family. We won . The judges decision was that the baby be discharged immediately from foster care, and placed with her father. The other side appealed though, and was granted a Stay. So back to the book we go. Thank you
for making available such a wonderful book!" 09/292000 Arnetta Kenney (grandmother) Johnathan Kenney ( father)
"The Win Your Child Custody War manual arrived this afternoon - looks like it is all you cracked it up to be. But you know we almost did not buy it, here is why: When I read your ad online, I called all the bookstores, the University Book store, Tower Books and Barnes & Nobel and even asked about it on the lt. child-support news group. I was informed that was an 'old' book printed in 1994, by Barnes & Noble. Only the University of Washington book store offered to order it for me, 3 to 5 weeks. We re-read the index and decided to get it anyway. Then I read upon opening the book that it is updated more often than any other on the market. I would strongly suggest that fact is brought out in your ad. What we did do was to go to each of the book stores with the index printed out and tried to match the data to other books - no luck - we spent a whole day going through those three book stores. We are in the middle of a custody case and finding 'Real' information is like finding hen's teeth. I figure after 3 readings we should be ready to outline a complete battle plan - one is already forming & we are glad we sent for the book." 7/20/97 James McFarland, Seattle, WA
