I am a practicing Divorce and Custody Attorney for more than 30 years, a Domestic Mediator, Arbitrator, Case Evaluator/Domestic Relations, Guardian Ad Litem, an Educational Psychologist, Co-Founder of The Institute For Co-Parenting Resolution, and the creator and host of The Parents' Hour, which is an Internet talk show on voiceamerica devoted to topics of importance to parents and their children. My experiences have convinced me that issues involving child custody, visitation, and child support are the most important issues that parents face. Their decisions affect not only themselves, but their children as well.
Parents who strive to become successful and effective co-parents create a healthy and wholesome environment for everyone, especially for the child who depends on the love and support of BOTH parents.
This website offers some important information that you may want to review and discuss with your attorney as you consider your options.
HOW TO SURVIVE AND WIN AS A CO-PARENT (SECOND EDITION) contains important and useful information including The Kerman Custody Questionnaire For Parents, Twenty-Four Cooperative Strategies For Parents, The Kerman Co-Parenting Plan, chapters on alternative dispute resolution, the benefits of co-parenting, stepparenting, litigation, how professionals view co-parenting, a custody evaluator's view of co-parenting, and a short story, Sally Rose: A Teenage Casualty Of A Custody Battle. The Kerman Co-Parenting Plan on a CD in both Word and WordPerfect formats is also included. The book is for all parents who want to co-parent effectively and successfully, whether Single, Married, Separated, and Divorced.

ABOUT THE SHOW
Keeping families together, whole, and healthy is sometimes a serious challenge to a parents, and when there is a crisis, where can they turn? On “The Parents' Hour”, host Dr. Arline Kerman, has represented parents for over 30 years as a divorce and custody attorney, in addition to being a guardian ad litem, domestic mediator, case evaluator/domestic relations, arbitrator, author, and educational psychologist. She gives straightforward answers to the hard questions being asked by parents today who need help in properly parenting their children. Each week, Dr. Kerman provides a frank forum covering current topics like the crisis we have in education, problems with juvenile offenders, and guidelines for how parents can relate to each other so the child is not traumatized. Many parents are not aware of the resources out there in the community that can help them cope with the problems of child-rearing. Parents are also encouraged to consider using the materials on the shows, which are archived, as a basis for discussion with their children. Parents may also email their childrens' questions for the guests on upcoming shows. Three times a year, the show will feature "The Kids' Hour" with children age 14 and over who will discuss topics of interest to them, such as parenting, school, politics, drugs, etc. So tune in and get informed!
