Based on the studies of psychological and legal experts, this book shows how seemingly ordinary family situations can sometimes take dramatic developments. The book is based on the testimony of parents and child victims of family wars through the various stages of the judicial process, through the perspective of the different actors: judges, experts, psychiatrists, psychologists, jurists, and lawyers. It shows the limits of the various forms of intervention in the current legal context in France and draws on the experiences implemented in neighboring countries to advance promising models of intervention. This book is primarily intended for the general public because anyone considering a separation worries about how the children will preserve a relationship with both parents. The purpose of this book is to bring understanding of the phenomena involved in high-conflict parental separation and possible solutions for the protection of children and respect of their rights.
