Future Development

As stated above, a "Parents" survey has been developed. Listed below are some thoughts on other surveys that could be developed by our team:

Helpful Links "If you don't know your Rights, you have None."

Hopefully in this section one can provide the mosts helpful links, references, etc. Yes there are numerous, but the top should go here. Can even sub catagorize them..ie parents, grand parents, etc.


Suggested Common Concern*

"We are joining forces with all persons affected by Parens Patriae to include parents, extended family, foster parents and father's and mother's rights groups. While this is a difficult endeavor due to various divisions, the focus will be on challenging the system with the unified goals and commonalities that each is suffering under in family courts and through Child Protective Agencies and other related Groups."

(See Definition: Parens Patriae)

*Note: Originally created by a Family Advocate in the state of WA and shared with many individuals and groups over the past few years.
