Vol. 6, No. 1, 1989

Litigating child-custody or visitation disputes is a complex endeavor. Because of the special protection the law accords religious beliefs, attorneys must carefully collect relevant facts and use appropriate language. Without questioning the truth or falsehood of a group's religious doctrines, attorneys should try to demonstrate that the group's practices are physically or psychologically detrimental to the child. Information from a variety of sources, including teachers, school psychologists, social workers, therapists, etc., should be considered. Several case examples are discussed.
