Joint Legal Custody is Your Constitutional Right
By Don Hubin, Ph.D., Chair, National Parents Organization of Ohio Executive Committee

Imagine a right that for nearly a century U.S. courts (including the Supreme Court) have recognized as a constitutionally-protected “fundamental right” which “cannot be denied without violating those fundamental principles of liberty and justice which lie at the base of all our civil and political institutions.” Such a right “undeniably warrants deference, and, absent a powerful countervailing interest, protection”.

Surely such a right would be zealously protected by the courts. And if it were not, we should be outraged.

There is such a right. It receives little protection by our courts. And we should, indeed, be outraged!

Reading the language our courts invoke when discussing parental rights, one would expect those rights to receive vigilant protection from the courts. But, in fact, family law courts across the nation routinely infringe on parental rights with not even a semblance of due process required when restricting fundamental constitutional rights.

Study: One-Third of College Women Lied About Contraception Use
July 10, 2013 by Robert Franklin, Esq.
The subject of women who intentionally become pregnant without the knowledge or consent of their partners has always intrigued me. There’s an enormous amount of literature on the subject of “unplanned,” “unwanted,” “accidental,” etc. pregnancies, but those terms have always sounded like euphemisms, cop-outs. Read more...

Volunteer Testimonial

“I have been a step-parent for over 20 years and now am a doting grandmother to two beautiful granddaughters. By spending time with my step-children through the years, I have seen first-hand the wants and needs of children whose parents are divorced or separated. I believe children deserve the opportunity to love and to spend time with both of their parents equally through shared parenting.”
