Parenting at a Distance
Staying in touch with the children who live in your heart but not in your
"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.

Twin Cities Family Law Attorneys
When parents separate, custody of the children is often one of their most
important concerns. Parents may be anxious to ensure that they will stay
actively involved in their children's lives and upbringing. They may also worry
that child custody will become a "football" in a contentious divorce, a way to
hurt one another rather than protect the best interests of the children. And
parents worried about money may believe child custody will be a deciding factor
in support and maintenance orders.
At the St. Paul law office of Krug & Zupke, we understand that this is an
anxious time for parents. We have practiced law since 1984, so we have
substantial experience handling child custody and other family law matters. We
can represent clients in anything from an uncontested, relatively simple divorce
to a complex, contentious case involving a trial. In all family law matters, we
strive to really listen to our clients and take that knowledge to the court or
the negotiating table, to meet our clients' most important parenting goals.
