About this Book

Federal and state governments are increasingly focusing on father involvement. There has been little focus, however, on how the legal community can better engage nonresident fathers in child welfare cases. This is the first book devoted to representing this population and it is a much needed resource for public defenders' offices and solo practitioners representing parents. The authors offer practical strategies to lawyers and judges to help them protect father's constitutional rights; advocate for and engage fathers in and out-of-court; overcome barriers to father participation such as child support, incarceration, immigration status, and criminal history; and address unique ethical issues.

Co-Sponsor: National Quality Improvement Center on Non-Resident Fathers and the Child Welfare System
