Abstract: While battles for the custody of children between straight parents are often difficult and painful experiences, custody battles involving lesbian mothers tend to be much worse. The LESBIAN MOTHERS DEFENSE FUND coordinates aid and support to mothers in their fight for custody and visiting rights. They offer pre-legal advice and information on successful cases referrals to sympathetic expert lawyers, financial help in building a strong court case and personal and emotional support. They also publish a newsletter two or three times yearly called "Grapevine", which covers news of fights for custody in both the U.S. and Canada and reports on support work currently done in this area.
