Long Description

The best interest of the child is an overriding principle in all matters of family law, especially in child custody cases. The Best Interests of Children links social theory with survey data to establish much-needed parameters for determining a child's best interest.

In analyzing the determinants of family law and child development, Paul Millar utilizes information from the Centre for Justice Statistics as well as data from national surveys. Millar's findings show that while the gender of caregivers is unimportant, family dynamics and parenting strategies are paramount: what matters is what parents do. His theoretical framework stresses the importance of relationships and posits that developmental problems related to divorce stem from lost adult-child bonds.

This book provides important criteria for determining the best interest of the child and concludes that the role of law in the lives of children must be to preserve their connections with those that love them.

Article of interest

Sorry folks for the slow and spotty service to our site yesterday (1/10/2013). There was work being done in the area and it caused general service interuptions.

We experienced poor internet accessability and noticed far fewer visitors than normal to the site. There was a point over night when all internet service went down. We contacted our ISP this morning to find out they were performing maintenance in our area and had to shut down a hub station at one point.

The maintenance in general caused a bottle neck for data in our area and shutting down the hub took us completely off-line for almost an hour.

This is regretable but well beyond our control. We are sorry if this impacted you and access to our data.
