Dr. Lagha Fanaian
A Family Law Lawyer who believes in Family! Ebook
Dr. Fanaian practices family law in Ottawa, Canada and is a graduate of the University of Ottawa, and University of Tehran, Iran. He has taught law and middle eastern affairs on three continents. His other publications include "Legal Education for New Canadians"
He believes that family is the most important institution in society. Families produce children, our future. In divorce, parents are going through the most stressful time in their lives, when they are vulnerable. Adversarial family law exploits that vulnerability for profit and careerism. Perverse incentives favour sole custody and encourage conflict, false accusations and procedural tricks. Society is not sustainable with the legal profession plundering the vulnerable. Lawyers themselves burn out from moral and emotional conflicts. The solution is a loving family law: compassionate, collaborative and mediative.
Legal professionals, politicians and family advocates should heed this passionate call for reform of law and practice.
“The notion of less litigation and more direct involvement of mother and dad in finding a workable solution is a refreshingly novel and workable concept. Mr Fanaian clearly understands that resolution of child rearing issues is a human, not a gender issue. ...this book is a welcome primer for divorce laws based upon love of children...”
—The Honourable Roger Gallaway, co-chair, Joint Senate-Commons Committee on Child Custody and Access
“Every divorcing parent should read this plea for a collaborative, problem-solving approach to family law.” G.C., FatherCraft Canada
Loving Law provides a re-examination of purpose engaging individual responsibility and our collective opportunity for family relations as a caring profession. Dr. Fanaian helps us understand Collaborative Practice and Mediation as central to mainstream conflict and dispute resolution facilitating true healing and peace in the divorce and separation experience. This critical challenge reveals an inspirational quest to restore joy and harmony in our personal and professional lives.
