Today is a new day for parents who want to transition safely through and out of conflict.
Why is this news? Because this is unsafe territory for good parents and children, and the “playing field” known as Family Court is filled with hidden potholes.
Everyone is in agreement. The debate was held and documentaries were unveiled. National and local news media have reported. Did you listen?
Anyone who takes a good look inside courtrooms, who sees the evidence being ignored, and who does not turn away from outcomes we are seeing must agree. This makes no sense. The question is how do we explain this, where do we go for help to correct the problems, and how do we help families and children recover?
The world is watching as this latest Georgia story unfolds, under the spotlight of the 2014 Masters Tournament in Augusta.
“Augusta Gets the Green Light“ is the landing page for this developing story.
Parents, grandparents and ethical professionals now have the green light to share their experiences.
What is our Call to Action from these stories?
Children need the best of both parents. In this moment, we can help this father have a chance to defend himself and get back to work. He wants to provide for his daughter. This father is one of several being denied basic rights, and likewise there are mothers also falsely accused and blocked from protecting and nurturing children. In all of these cases, the needs of children are ignored.

Watch the Divorce Corp. and No Way Out But One documentaries for more insight into why so many parents are asking for help. Another documentary coming out that we will screen and report on in Georgia is the Kids for Cash story in June 2014. These stories have a common thread, and that is deception using our court system and taking advantage of vulnerable parties — especially when children are involved.
Contact us about a private screening if appropriate.
