Parenting at a Distance"As a bipolar mother I will never have custody of my children. That is the hardest thing I had to accept. Parenting at a Distance helps me send them activities that will help them remember me with some happy memories. I am getting better and they are getting older. Some day there will be an opportunity for us to sit together. I will tell them how much joy I found in putting together their projects and I hope they will be able to tell me how much they enjoyed my efforts. Really a good book." Meghan Morris --Letter to the publisher
"Parenting at a Distance, has been a great resource for me. At first the mother of my son didn't want to help me communicate with the kids. The fact that I had a plan for contact with them and was consistent won her over. I think she gets as much a kick out of the seeing what will be in the next package as the boys do." Ken Richards --Weekend Fathers Newsletter.

Petition for Legitimation and Custody/Visitation
In Georgia, an order of legitimation creates a father and child relationship legally between the petitioner and his child. An order of legitimation establishes that the child may inherit from this legal father and vice versa. An order of legitimation allows the legal father to be listed on the child's birth certificate as such. An order of legitimation is the only way that the father of a child born out of wedlock can be recognized as the legal father of a child and therefore can petition for custody and/or visitation with this child.

Seventh-Day Adventist Marriage Encounter
Marriage Encounter, is a weekend away from home, family and responsibilities where in a comfortable, secluded environment a couple is guided in the discovery of new techniques of communicating and sharing with one another. It is not a retreat, but it is a program designed to give couples the opportunity to examine their lives together, their weaknesses and strong points, their attitudes toward each other and toward their families. Couples are given the opportunity to look at themselves, privately with their partner in an honest, face-to-face, heart-to-heart encounter.
Engaged Encounter, is a weekend experience designed to help couples prepare personally and as a couple for marriage. The focus is on the marriage, not on the wedding. "A wedding is a day ... a marriage is a lifetime." Couples are shown communication and decision-making techniques they can use throughout their lifetime together. Engaged Encounter is specifically designed for quiet reflection and discussion by each couple. It is a positive, simple, common-sense experience between two people who are either seriously considering engagement, engaged or recently married. At no time will the couple be asked to share their private experiences with the group.
Killers & Boosters for Child Custody Cases

With this book you can take advice when you want it and ready to hear it. You can act on what you have learned, mull it over or discard the advice altogether without interference. This book will not allow you to give the opposition power you might imagine but that they do not really have or let you allow others to diminish the importance you play in your children's lives. Divorce is never easy, this will help. This book has been called 'Chicken Soup' for the Child Custody Case. It will help a lot and it certainly can't hurt. This book is 5 1/2" X 9" and has more than 1,700 entries. Click here to see more about the book.

This site originates in New Zealand but addresses a world wide problem. Telecom is the major sponsor of Police programs which help young New Zealanders to avoid becoming offenders or victims of crime. The programs encourage children and young people to act safely and confidently to protect themselves and their property, and avoid drug abuse.
