LegalZoom.com National Survey Finds Americans Still Lack Basic Protection; Three out of Four Parents Have Not Prepared a Last Will, Leaving Children Unprotected: One in Five Families Cites Guardianship Disagreements as a Deterrent to Preparing a Will

Divorce Lawyer Says Families Do Not Belong In The Court Of Law

Fresno, California (PRWEB) December 5, 2007

Fresno divorce lawyer, Erin Rhames-Childs says that the court of law is no place for families. The cold courtroom hallways are best for those with contract disputes and criminal charges. Divorce courts are overworked and understaffed forcing judges into making quick decisions that are not always right. Collaborative divorce is a cheaper, quicker option for couples to maintain control over their destiny and protect their families from hasty decisions.

“Families don’t belong in the court of law,” says Erin Rhames-Childs, a Fresno County Collaborative Lawyer. With divorce at the highest rates in years, local divorce courts are inundated with too many litigants, and too little time to handle them.

For many, the cold hallways of a courthouse are traumatizing and some court orders for custody, visitation or property division are devastating for years after.

Through traditional divorce litigation, disputes over child custody and child visitation, parties are forced to hand over their most precious possessions – their children – to a stranger in a black robe will order when and how they will be raised, when and how each party will see them and how much money they will have to do all of this. “I would never want that for myself and I don’t want it for my clients,” says Erin Rhames-Childs, a family law attorney who practices Collaborative Law in the Central Valley.

“Court is no place for families – it’s a place for contract disputes and criminal proceedings.”

The average divorce costs anywhere from five to tens of thousand of dollars and can take anywhere from six months to years to end. All the while, your family and financial security is in limbo. The California Community Property Laws are good at making division of assets “easy” but don’t necessary give people what the need.

“The judges are hard-working, well-intentioned public servants, but are very limited with what they can do. They have very little time to really listen to your needs and make the best decision that is in the best interests of your children or your finances.”

Attorney Childs practices Collaborative Divorce which is a rapidly growing alternative to the traditional divorce litigation. “Collaborative Law is an innovative approach to restructuring your family during divorce which focuses on the needs of your family and allows you both to be in charge of the decisions affecting the rest of your lives. All of this is done while keeping your personal and financial dignity intact.”

One of the primary goals of Collaborative Law is to preserve couples’ dignity, and respect. Honesty and the free sharing of information are expected and repeatedly encouraged. The idea is to preserve relationships for after the divorce when everything is said and done. In traditional divorce, the attorneys are paid gladiators – there to win at all costs, which usually ends with serious financial and emotional massacre.

The most salient feature of Collaborative Divorce is that both parties must commit in writing to not take their case to court and committing to finding resolutions that best serve their needs through a series of four-way meetings with their collaboratively trained attorneys.

Collaborative practice is often cheaper, faster and results in the parties preserving a functional relationship which will allow them to continue raising their children as divorced parents. “There is a lot less blood shed and the children are spared the trauma of the front row seat to it all.”

Erin Rhames-Childs is a Fresno divorce litigation attorney who provides services for divorce, child custody, child support, spousal support, adoptions, guardianships, grandparent rights, domestic partnerships, and domestic violence restraining orders. Childs & Childs is proud to work throughout the Central Valley including cities like Fresno, Madera, Clovis, Kingsburg, Reedley, Selma, Tulare, Hanford, Visalia, Merced, Modesto and Coalinga.

McGruff Helps Families, Schools, and Law Enforcement Take A Bite Out of Internet Crimes Against Kids

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 22, 2008

In an effort to take a bite out of Internet crimes against kids, the National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) and Children’s Educational Network (CEN) announce the launch of McGruff Kid Safe Browser(http://www.McGruffBrowser.com). Using CEN’s The Ultimate Kids Internet (http://www.TUKI.com) technology, this new “keep kids safe online” software will come complete with easy-to-use parental controls that allow children to surf the Internet in a safer and more educational environment that is the perfect tool for schools, law enforcement and families.

Approximately 53 million American youth, ages 4 to 16, access the Internet from their homes each day. Few use computers enabled with systems (parental controls) that protect them from accessing websites with pornographic materials or talking with the numerous predators that surf the Internet looking for opportunities to interact with children.

Greg Writer, founder and CEO of CEN, watched as the number of online-related crimes against children began to rise in the late 1990s. But he didn’t sit on the sidelines and complain. As a father of five with a background in investment banking, he created CEN and its parental controlled software for private labeling. “I am excited to work with NCPC. This makes an incredible statement as to where we are as a company and where we are going as a Nation in the fight against Internet crimes against children,” he explains. “With McGruff we can reach youth audiences and the crime fighting community, offering a McGruff branded browser and educational tools that address this very important issue,” Greg states.

With one glance at the most recent Internet safety statistics, most will agree this is a problem that needs a lot of attention and advanced tools offered by CEN & NCPC to keep our kids safe.

Tame Halloween Fright with Bark Busters’ Safety Tips for Families with Dogs

Englewood, CO (PRWEB) September 29, 2008

Keep dogs safe during Halloween — the most dangerous holiday for dogs — with tips from Bark Busters, the world’s largest dog training company. Based on the expertise of Bark Busters’ network of dog behavioral therapists, who have successfully trained over 400,000 dogs worldwide, these guidelines for dog owners help ensure the safety of pets during fright night.

“Throughout our network of 255 franchises nationwide, we hear about more dogs dying or straying during Halloween than any other holiday,” said Liam Crowe, CEO and master dog behavioral therapist of Bark Busters USA. “Halloween is intended to scare and startle us–making it a haunting holiday for dogs, too. By being more sensitive to dogs’ fear-driven ‘fight or flight’ instincts, we can help keep our furry friends safe this Halloween.”

Halloween brings a fun time for most of us, but for some of our much-loved four-legged family members, Halloween can be a nightmare. Dog owners may not be able to control external surroundings, but they can care for their dog’s safety and well being by observing the following tips from the world’s largest dog training company, Bark Busters:

-Don’t leave your dog outside. Even if you have a fenced yard, bring your dog inside where it is safe. If your dog is usually kept outside, bring him in a few times before the big night to get him used to being indoors. Your dog may be used to strangers, but so many little ghouls and goblins running about may be too much. Remember also that it is a natural instinct for dogs to protect the family from strangers, and on Halloween there will be no shortage of strangers.

-Keep your dog restrained. If your dog is timid or scared, or if he tends to love people a little too much, it is best to put him in a separate room away from the front door to limit his excitability, aggression, and chance of running outside and becoming lost.

-Reassure your dog. The best thing you can do for your dog when he is feeling unsettled by Halloween activities is to act as you normally would. By over-reassuring your dog or giving him an unusual amount of attention, you inadvertently can communicate to him that because you are acting differently, there must be something to worry about.

-Have your dog get used to costumes. Your dog may see his family members as strangers once they don their Halloween costumes. Before the kids put them on, allow your dog to scent the costumes. If your costume has a mask, keep the mask off when you are with your dog because dogs can become confused when they can’t see our faces.

-Check your dog’s ID tag. Be sure identification tags are secure on your dog’s collar — just in case.

-Keep candy away from your dog. Many candies — especially chocolate–are toxic to dogs. The severity of the toxicity depends greatly on factors such as breed, age, size, and how much candy was ingested. Problems may range from a mild upset tummy to vomiting and diarrhea, or even death. If you have any concerns at all, consult with a veterinarian immediately. If you want to keep your dog safe, make certain that sweets, including their wrappers, are kept well away from your dog.

-Protect dogs from candles and pumpkins. Excited or agitated dogs can easily knock over a lit candle or pumpkin. Be sure those items are away from your dog’s reach, or consider a battery-powered candle that does not burn

-Think twice about dressing your dog in a costume. While some dogs might enjoy being dressed up, many don’t. Experiment first to see if your dog likes being in a costume. If so, fine–he’ll most likely enjoy himself and the extra attention it brings. However, if he shows any resistance, don’t do it. Dogs feel enough stress around Halloween without also having to endure the discomfort and peculiarity of wearing a strange costume.

-Be prepared. If you take your dog with you while trick-or-treating, be prepared at all times. Do not let your dog approach the door of a house, and stay clear of possible gags or gangs of goblins who will gather at the door. Dogs do not understand that the person jumping out at you will not hurt you; they often think they can only help you by acting aggressively. Neither children nor adults in costumes should approach a dog without the owner’s consent.

-Have fun but think of your dog’s safety. Finally, if you want your dog to be included in Halloween festivities, think about his safety much as you would the safety of a small child. Your dog does not understand Halloween, so he needs you to provide the guidance and safety that you always do.

Bark Busters dog behavioral therapists are renowned authorities on correcting dog behavior. The Bark Busters training system can successfully train any dog, including a puppy. The company’s natural training technique leverages the same communications methods–body language and voice control–that dogs follow as part of their instinctual pack mentality.

Confidant Solutions and Our Military Kids Partner to Promote Family Protection While Supporting Military Families

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) November 3, 2009

Confidant Solutions Inc. and Our Military Kids today announced a joint promotion beginning on Veterans Day, November 11, 2009, and continuing through January 10, 2010. The campaign is aimed at raising funds for grants that will be awarded during the month of April, 2010, in celebration of the Month of the Military Child.

Our Military Kids is a rapidly growing, innovative non-profit that addresses important gaps in support for the children of National Guard, Reserve, and severely injured military personnel. When a military parent is deployed overseas or recovering from severe injury at home, extracurricular activities become all the more important for keeping kids involved and on track. More than 85,000 children are affected by the deployment of a National Guard or Reserve parent and over 60% of these families live further than 25 miles from a military installation. Consequently, the numerous programs and support services provided on bases are not an option for many Guard and Reserve families. Our Military Kids enables Guard and Reserve children to participate in any extracurricular program that they choose, giving children the freedom to pursue their own interests in athletics, academics, or the arts in the community in which they live. Our Military Kids has awarded over 13,000 grants totaling $ 4.8 million and is growing as awareness of its mission spreads.

Confidant Solutions Inc. provides an innovative, secure online technology that protects families by addressing an important gap in family information: that family members frequently do not know the information that would be needed in case of emergency, and have no easy, secure way to share such information. Confidant makes available readily online information such as the location of vital documents, contact details for key people, the institutions where accounts and policies are held, and location of important objects, using an intuitive icon-driven interface with bank-standard security. Confidant is easier than an electronic vault because it does not require uploading or managing electronic documents; users simply enter relevant details such as document location and key contacts, and then share this critical information with designated “confidants” by granting them customized permissions to view selected details. Confidants can be added or deleted, or their access permissions changed, at any time.

Confidant and Our Military Kids have collaborated because of the philosophical alignment of their missions: protecting families by providing innovative solutions to address important gaps. The American public recognizes the need to protect their own families, as well as the special needs of military families who are making sacrifices on behalf of all of us says Confidant founder Samuel Sandy Haviland. We are very pleased to partner with Our Military Kids in promoting a way that families can serve both needs, by donating a portion of their Confidant subscriptions to help fund grants for military children. Mary Carolyn Voght, Director of Special Projects for Our Military Kids, says Its a great way to give back to those who are sacrificing to make our nation a better place for us all.

The larger the number of Confidant subscriptions, the larger the number of grants that will be funded in April to support the children of deployed Guard and Reserve personnel and the children of severely injured service members. Confidant can be found online at http://www.beconfidant.com and users can ensure support of the Our Military Kids grant program by entering the promotional code OMK at the time of their subscriptions.

About Confidant Solutions Inc.

Confidant Solutions Inc. provides secure technology for tracking and sharing vital personal information to protect families with a system that helps ensure access to information by those who would need it. Confidant subscriptions are available online, or can be obtained through various channel partners. Please visit http://www.beconfidant.com for further information about the company and ConfidantTM.

About Our Military Kids

Our Military Kids provides tangible support to children of deployed National Guard and Reserve personnel as well as to children of severely injured service members through grants for enrichment activities and tutoring. Such activities help these children cope with the stress of having a parent in a war zone or recovering from injury at home. Please visit http://www.ourmilitarykids.org for further information.

Families Booking Popular Reunion Cruises during Wave Season Now Qualify for Travel Insureds Group Travel Insurance in 2010

East Hartford, CT (PRWEB) February 11, 2010

Travel Insureds recently updated group travel insurance plans allow coverage for family groups of 10 or more members booking their reunion cruises. The 2010 Wave Season marks the first time family groups can enjoy group travel insurance savings in the booking period when the industry offers some of its best cruise deals of the year.

The first quarter of the year, the traditional Wave Season period when cruise line members of the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) offer some of their most attractive sales, is an opportunity for family groups of 10 or more. They can tap into the growing popularity of family reunion cruises and get a great deal for cruising together in summer, fall or even next winter. Travel Insured International has recently revised and simplified its group travel insurance program into two choices of Travel Insured Lite or Deluxe Group Protection plans. The revision allows family groups of 10 or more members, who previously needed to purchase individual plans, to obtain the savings of Travel Insured group insurance. Remember that group members are required to be traveling to the same destination with the same departure and return dates to be covered on the same Travel Insured group protection plan.

Family travel insurance coverage allows for groups of relatives to take advantage of the popular reunion vacation experience that cruising provides. Dozens of daily onboard cruise activities usually include something for everyone, and supervised childrens programs on many vessels, organized for kids in multiple age groups, allow parents to enjoy adult vacations enhanced by hours of child-sitting services.

Members of a family can enjoy several Travel Insured Group Deluxe or Lite Protection plan options that mean flexibility for both the group and its individuals.

One set of attractive premium rates for the group: there is no difference whether the insurance is inclusive for all members or voluntary for individual members.
Cancel for Any Reason coverage is available as an included purchase for the entire group provided it is purchased within 14 days as an option with either the Lite or Deluxe Protection plan. The Cancel for Any Reason option allows group members to cancel their trip for any reason up to two days prior to scheduled departure and obtain up to a 75% reimbursement of prepaid, non-refundable trip costs.
If a group arranges its trip – and buys either the Group Lite or Group Deluxe Protection plan through a travel agent partner of Travel Insured International it enjoys the added option to purchase Cancel for Any Reason coverage either as an included purchase for the entire group or as an optional purchase by individuals within the group.
Group insurance members can qualify, if they purchase the group insurance plan prior to their final trip payment, for a Pre-Existing Medical Condition waiver. The waiver can provide Trip Cancellation coverage before the trip, or Trip Interruption and Emergency Medical Expense coverage during the trip, for a recurrence of a pre-existing condition that might otherwise be excluded from coverage under the plan.

The Best Group Cruise Insurance for Wave Season

In addition to the above pricing features and options, Travel Insured International group plans offer a range of coverage to deal with unforeseen risks that could potentially disrupt a family or other group cruise vacation.

Travel Insureds Group Deluxe Protection plan includes: Trip Cancellation / Interruption; Trip Delay of up to $ 150 per insured per day; Emergency Accident & Sickness Medical Expenses; Emergency Medical Evacuation; Baggage & Personal Effects plus Baggage Delay; 24-hour Emergency Travel Assistance and up to $ 25,000 of Travel Accident coverage.
Travel Insured Group Lite Protection plan has lower premiums and benefit limits than the Deluxe plan. It includes: Trip Cancellation / Interruption; Trip Delay; Emergency Medical Expenses; Emergency Medical Evacuation; Baggage & Personal Effects plus Baggage Delay, and 24-hour Emergency Travel Assistance.

Pre-Booking Travel Insured Group Plans

There is a pre-booking requirement for Travel Insured Group Plans. Group leaders or agents should visit http://www.travelinsured.com or call 1-800-243-3174 and ask for the Group Administrator. A first step is to apply either for inclusive plan for the whole group or a voluntary plan for individual members. For inclusive, the plan must be included for all passengers and payment included as part of the initial trip deposit. For voluntary, the cost of the protection plan must be invoiced as a separate line item with an option to decline the protection plan by subtracting the plan cost from the total package price.

Insured participants must insure the full prepaid cost of the trip. Premiums, which are net price, must be paid along with the group manifest by the 15th of the month prior to trip departure, and both manifests and credit card payment by Visa or Master Card, can be made online. Travel agency checks are also accepted. Once premium payment has been received the travel agent or group leader will receive electronically a Description of Coverage to be distributed to group members.

Find your best family reunion Wave Season cruise deal, preferably with professional travel agent guidance. Remember to take along the best group cruise insurance for Wave Season, either Travel Insured Group Deluxe or Group Lite Protection with optional Cancel for Any Reason. Enjoy your reunion cruise!
