Parenting at a Distance

Staying in touch with the children who live in your heart but not in your home.

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.

Goldstein & Bachman 888-35-LEGAL 732-360-9300
14 Woodward Drive, Old Bridge, New Jersey 08857

In January 2009, New Jersey officials took away a couple's three young children, and the couple have been fighting the court system for child custody ever since. On November 17, the wife gave birth to a boy, who child care workers also took away following the birth. The names of the children are what drove workers to deny the parents custody.

The couple apparently identifies with Neo-Nazi views, and they gave their children names to that effect. One of their sons who was taken away in 2009 had the name of "Adolf Hitler," and one of the other children had the middle name of "Aryan Nation." They made national headlines at the time after a store refused to put the son's name on a birthday cake.

Since 2009, the couple has been in numerous court hearings in a bid to win their children back. The court appears unwilling to do so, not only because of their Neo-Nazi views but also because of domestic violence reports involving the husband. For his part, the man says that no such police reports exist.

The names which the couple have given their children may well be in bad taste, although the most recent boy was given the relatively unassuming name of "Hons." Nonetheless, they do have every right to fight for child custody, and the assistance of legal counsel may help them in this regard. Similarly, a deep and thorough knowledge of family law may prove invaluable to Florida residents who lost child custody and are fighting to regain it.

In New Jersey, judges will take several factors into consideration before making a custody decision that is meant to be in the best interests of the children involved. Most importantly, judges will make sure that parents have been and will continue to be involved with the upbringing of their children.

Issues of parental fitness can also be assessed by judges. Past or current problems with alcohol or other substance abuse could affect a parent's eligibility for primary or joint custody. An individual's criminal record or history of domestic violence will most certainly be taken into consideration.

In today's technological age, social media is even playing a role in some divorce and child custody cases. A parent who has engaged in misconduct in the form of video footage, e-mails, recorded phone messages or online postings could be considered an unfit parent.

    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.

NJCCR believes that the best parent is both Parents and its goal in helping families is to resolve issues when divorce is necessary or chosen by the couple.

Additionally, NJCCR believes in the preservation of the family units net worth for the well being of the children and discourages unnecessary and destructive usage of the adversarial process of family law.

The stability of our society depends on the ethical and moral behavior of the professionals that surround the divorce industry and NJCCR believes all professionals and well as the family courts should be held accountable for their actions, especially when children are involved.

NJCCR honors our Judges, Lawyers, Psychologist, social workers and others within the system that adhere to the rules of professional conduct for their respective profession.

NJCCR was originally organized in 1988 to address concerns regarding, lack of access to, the non-custodial parent for children of separation or divorce. Today, NJCCR has evolved to become a coalition of non custodial men and women, husbands and wives, grandparents and concerned individuals, who care about children's needs and rights to enjoy and benefit from having equal access to both parents and stepparents.

As an affiliate chapter of the Children's Rights Council (CRC) in Washington, D.C., the NJCCR is currently working toward alleviating the negative affects of changes in the American family structure by educating and helping children and families facing alternate living situations.

Divorce is a complex process unfortunately controlled by our judiciary system, where individuals in many cases have little or no input, even though it will forever change their lives. Individuals that are supposed to be helped by the system are often left out of the decision process and handed standard "solutions" that can damage the parent/child relationship by ignoring existing laws for reasons of expedience and convenience.

Membership is open to both men and women and we encourage the participation of fathers, mothers, grandparents, stepparents and extended families and friends.
