Author(s)Ryan C. Coulson
First Page233
AbstractHere I focus on the divorce lawyer's responsibility to self, client, and profession when his or her client, in the midst of a hotly contested battle over custody or visitation, provides him or her with information that the spouse, or ex-spouse, or ex-spouse's boyfriend or girlfriend or stepchild, has been molesting or otherwise abusing the battle prize, and insists on his or her-and the court's-immediate action.
