Listen to Our Children in Need: Special Needs Children and Divorce

Commented May 8, 2012 at 23:24:08 in Divorce

“As a lawyer doing family law, as well as working with individuals with disabilities and their families, I like this article's realistic take. I am also heartened by the goal of true co-parenting during and after divorce.”

“Hi Penelope, As family attorneys, we have an obligation to help families with special needs children going through divorce ease the inflammation. I am glad we are on the same page. We need to advocate to pass legislation for child support beyond 18 or 21 for those who are not self-sufficient due to mental or physical disabities. I look forward to meeting and working with you. Best, Sherri Donovan”

Male Monsters -- Girl Buried Alive for Being a Girl and the World Shrugs

Commented Feb 6, 2010 at 14:26:49 in World

“Thank you for including examples of serious domestic violence in Europe and the US. It is so easy for people to separate themselves from honor killings and war rape as if it did not happen outside the so-called Third World. Unless women and girls everywhere are fully recognized as human beings, and violence in the family is recognized as just as much a crime as stranger violence, women will continue to bear the brunt of the dysfunction in every society.”

Let Them Eat Coal Ash: OSM Nominee Pizarchik Must Be Stopped Now

“Mr. Biggers - So much misinformation, so little time and limited words allowed to respond to your screed. Do your research before you write -- Joe does. Use specific facts and actual science -- Joe does. He worked with what he had in terms of the legislative mandates in Pennsylvania at the time when the federal government was not. Disposal of coal ash in abandoned mines has been a problem in Pennsylvania for as many years as he has been alive. Name one instance where the public has been excluded from any commenting or public hearing in violation of the law. Joe would want the voice of the ordinary citizen to be heard loudly and clearly. As to the misleading statements about longwall mining and subsidence, go to the DEP website and look for the informational video warning of the effects of mining on homes and encouraging coalfield homeowners to get insurance. To suggest that Joe does not care what is happening to ordinary people by selectively quoting him is a Rovian tactic and I am disappointed that someone who appears the Huffington Post would go there. S

I am Joe's sister-in-law and proud of it. Joe is not only good natured and well-meaning, but he has done more to redirect the effect of coal on our environment in than you have done in your entire lifetime. So sign up for change or sign up for the same old trash politics -- it's your future too.”
