Summary Everett Waters is involved in a wide range of longitudinal research projects and educational programs that advance theBowlby-Ainsworth tradition of attachment study. His empirical and theoretical knowledge is far reaching. Here, Watersexplores the family law field’s hopes and expectations of attachment theory, identifies a number of myths about attachmenttheory that may influence divorce decision making, and challenges why we ask the questions we do. His views encouragehardened supporters and detractors of attachment theory alike to identify a middle ground where the essence of attachmentknowledge might best inform family law practices in divorce and separation matters.
