    Notes from Parents:


    "I'm sending you and Ron GREAT BIG TEXAS SIZED hugs! Your Bill springs forth a personal sense of accomplishment for so many who have worked so hard at this….you have made a visible symbol of the fruit of our hardwork that spews forth hope and renewed vigor! Our hearts are bursting with joy because you and Ron have allowed us into yours. Now, we thrust forward ever so fervently and persistently to bring your hard work to fruition. We stand strong, together, toward a unified mission for our children and so many more who will never know the fight fought so diligently for them. And THAT is our goal...for no one to have to be aware of this evil... because it no longer exists. Bless you, both!"

    Letter to Your Representative

    This is an EMERGENCY to get this done...time is running out. If you ever wanted to help reform family law. This is your chance today to stop the abuse of power in the family courts.

    Five great reasons to mail this Bill and letter out to your representative today:

    1. You want your time back with your child and you don't want it to cost thousands of dollars to keep your child in your life.
    2. You want counselors, guardian ad litems, and court facilitators to stop telling you what to do with your child and costing you money.
    3. You want to stop your ex from bullying you.
    4. You want your attorney to stop terrorizing and abusing you and your child.
    5. You want to stop being controlled by a narcissist.
    6. You want the court to stop empowering abusive behaviors and parental alienation.

    If you miss this date, you will have to wait another two years before you can propose changes to the family court practices!

    "Protecting Parent-Child Bonds: The 28th Amendment" is a book for those seeking changes to our family law system through legislation and political activism. Use this book to help you understand the concepts for how to protect your family rights and what they should look like in legislation.

    Here is the AG opinion that supports that there is a parental presumption that supports the best interest of the child:

      Here is audio recording of Chapter 7 from the book above, "Protecting Parent-Child Bonds." Use it to help you discuss how parents each are protected individually to their rights and time with their child. And how these rights and time should be protected equally until proper due process is applied.

      Please consider sponsoring and supporting the attached Bill to amend the current Texas Family Code. Too many families are being hurt in family law cases and too many children are being used in the process to strip fit and loving parents from their children. Children are losing their security that they had in their parents before the family court conflict. The current family courts are creating conditions that encourage parents to fight. This is hurting our children and the parents who were formerly productive, dynamic citizens. Parents shouldn’t have to spend thousands to be in their children’s lives. Please submit this Bill and get it passed so we can start to re-build the trust in our family courts. We look forward to you helping us restore fairness and justice in the family law process. Thank you for caring about the people you represent, the families and the children.   (STOP COPYING HERE) CLICK ON THE E-MAIL LINKS BELOW, copy and paste the text from above, AND SEND TO ALL OF THE HOUSE AND SENATE REPRESENTATIVES. You are letting them know that you are done spending tons of money fighting against bad policies in the family courts. They are there to represent you. You only get their help when you tell them what you want done.
