Not entirely accurate, and a little overdrawn, but largely correct: how men get screwed by modern divorce.

As someone who's been in on a few of these cases, I will say this: The article is right about the restraining order. I've seen dozens of women -- and their lawyers -- use it as an initial weapon in the custody battle. Yes, by its nature, such an order leads to a hearing of right; but judges (who are normally predisposed to extend injunctions anyway) tend to let it stand. And I think a lawyer could be sued -- not correctly -- for malpractice for not getting it in place, if it's in his client's best interest.

Hat Tip: Jimmy.
