We help men and dads educate themselves during separation, divorce and Family Court proceedings and have had many success stories who have taken what we teach and turn it into shared parenting orders, sole custody for dad, lowering child support and resolving child access/visitation problems.

We do so by teaching Dads to Wage Peace in Family Court or during Mediation and Negotiation sessions. We gather with 35-50 fathers to mastermind solutions to really difficult problems. Attend to learn how to become our next success story!

WHAT WE DO AT OUR MEETINGS

We help dads to educate themselves during separation, divorce and Family Court proceedings and have had many success stories who have taken what we teach and turn it into shared parenting orders, sole custody for dad, lowering child support, ending child access problems.

We do so by teaching Dads to wage peace in Family Court. We gather with 35-50 fathers to mastermind solutions to really difficult problems. Come and be our next success story!

The group runs in an question and answer format, we encourage the dads to network and learn the skills necessary to hire a qualified lawyer with a track record of success, and how to represent yourself in Family Court when you can't afford a lawyer.

We are a skills based group, very focused on solving difficult problems, and we have had a tremendous amount of success in helping fathers focus on what works, how to deal with the frustrations of their situation in a positive child-focused way that uses "waging peace" as the core principle.

When you come each week you'll not only hear stories like your own, you will hear from fathers who had stories just like yours who now have custody of their kids, joint custody, shared parenting, better access schedules, lower child support payments based on everything the law provides for, and you will begin to create your own Divorced Dad Action Plan to stop being a struggling clueless divorced dad and transform yourself into a successful strategic divorced dad.

We have had fathers who came to us terrified by their situations who in a few short months are beating lawyers in family Court with dozens of years of experience, because these dads discovered how to prepare themselves and not waste a judge's time.

We strongly encourage you to join with us and be a success story and to spread the word to other dads you meet in / out of Family Court to come join us.
