About our Book
Fathers Matter is divided into three parts. It explains with clarity and compassion how the law affects all categories of fathers and navigates the reader through this increasingly complicated area of family law.

Fathers Matter has been an invaluable source of information for our programme.S Feilden, Films of Record, Series Producer for the March 2010 BBC2 programme Who needs fathers?
Having made some enquiries about solicitors’ hourly charge out rates and discovering that I would have to pay a minimum of £140.00 per hour in my area I calculated that this book would only cost me the equivalent of about 8.5 minutes of a solicitor’s time. Let’s face it –
how much advice would you get in 8.5 minutes? Bearing in mind Fathers Matter was written by a former family solicitor who worked for some of the top firms in London my view is that this book is cheap at the price.Martin Brookes, Hammersmith
National Society for Children and Family Contact highly recommends the book Fathers Matter-
a guide to contact on separation and divorce by Celia Conrad. This is an indispensable and user- friendly step- by- step guide to all the issues relevant to any father seeking or trying to maintain contact with his children. The book covers all the pitfalls for fathers including how to avoid wasted legal costs by explaining how the family legal system works and its limitations for fathers. We at National Society for Children and Family Contact regard this as not only an essential guide, but one which genuinely will assist fathers and considerably reduce their legal costs by dealing with legal issues in a clear and constructive way.National Society for Children and Family Contact
I wish this book had been around when I went through my contemptible experiences at the hands of the Family Courts. It would have helped explain what was happening to me. It could have been the clear, cool voice of knowledge, experience, understanding and sympathy that is necessary to take men through the grief and pain and loss of having their children taken from them simply on the basis of their being male –
a very suspect condition if you’re a father, at least in the blinkered, myopic, outdated and reactionary view of our legal hierarchy. This book is a timely, invaluable guide around the many hurdles and obstructions the Courts will put in a man’s way to stop him being a dad to his kids. Read it and learn. Then try and change things so that children may know their dad loves them even if the law does not.Sir Bob Geldof KBE (Comments on the First Edition)
This book was a bargain. It’s more than paid for itself with the money I’ve saved on lawyers.R Hossein, Bradford
