Dr. Julie Ancis, a professor of Counseling Psychology at Georgia State
University, is studying women’s experiences with divorce and custody
disputes. The purpose of this research is to gain an understanding of
women’s experiences within the legal system. Individual interviews are
being conducted with participants, and will cover topics such as
interactions with attorneys, judges, and guardian ad litems; coping; and
parenting issues. Interviews are confidential and tend to last between 1
½ to 2 1/2 hours. With the knowledge gained through this study, we would
like to educate those in the court systems and health professionals
about the unique challenges that women may face in divorce and custody
disputes. We may pursue a study about men’s experiences at a future
date. Thank you for your consideration!
