A Family Court Hearing Sample

Today's world requires more interactions between government and families. The current Obama administration believes that big government is the solution.  I agree to a point--until such governmental departments become less and less productive to their overall need for Americans.

Some of my audiences are participating in an annual summer challenge: a pretend Confrontation War.  I wanted all of my audiences to review some of the available resources and activities that may be helpful at your unique household.

As a current Presidential candidate, I want to be your president who allows a productive choice to our concerns. I also want to improve outdated services, programs and overall American old stuff.

Here are two links that I would like to review at your leisure, such publications may be educational and useful in increasing family-bonding efforts of your external family sets.

The following is a court hearing that my unique household was forced to be a participant. This year marks the 10th anniversary, of the day, that I was legally and socially taken out of my unique household--a husband (forced marriage and 16 years later a forced divorce) and four biological young children in the apartment rental. The day was August 12, 2005 in Caroline County, Denton, Maryland.
