A personal protection order (PPO) is an order issued by the court. In situations where there is a domestic relationship, it can protect you from harassment, assault, beating, molesting, wounding, or stalking by another person. It provides police to prevent a crime before it happens, by preventing the other person from purchasing a firearm or interfering with your daily activities. The order can also prohibit him/her from entering your premises and removing minor children unless the removal is part of a court parenting time order.

In this episode of "Ask Henry", with attorney Henry Gornbein, we take a closer look at Personal protection orders from all sides.  Whether you are the one seeking the order or are on the receiving end, we cover all sides in this program.

Topics Include:

  • How to acquire a protection order
  • What the order means and the legal ramifications of violating an order
  • What to do if an order expires and you still fear for your safety

We're back with episode #4 of Single Again! Now What? with Joanie, Lesley and Steve.

Join the fun as we explore the ego and how it affects our daily life and relationships. We talk about Eckhart Tolle's books in this show, as much of his work is related to letting go of an unhealthy ego.

Nothing will kill a relationship more quickly than ego. So the next time you see your ego getting involved in your relationship, get rid of it! If you find yourself defending yourself or not allowing you to really listen, then you need to take a step back. Listen carefully to what’s really being said, and use it to create the most amazing relationship.

As usual, the show is served up with a big helping of laughter, so learn, laugh and love with Joanie, Lesley and Steve on Single Again! Now What?

In this episode of DSR with Steve Peck, our topic is Parental Kidnapping, and our guest is Maureen Dabbagh, a Virginia Supreme Court Family Mediator specializing in cross-border child custody disputes.

Maureen has experienced Parental Kidnapping firsthand.  Her three-year-old daughter was abducted from the United States and taken to the Middle East by her Syrian ex-husband. Maureen and her daughter had no communication for 17 years.

The reality of family abduction is that it is a form of child endangerment. Children abducted by family members are often forced into the nomadic, unstable lifestyle of a fugitive:  They are taught to hide their real identities under a false name and to avoid and distrust law enforcement and authority figures.

Maureen is the author of "Parental Kidnapping in America:  An Historical & Cultural Analysis."  Through her books, practice, and public appearances, she hopes to educate those experiencing or fearing a family abduction.  You can learn more about Maureen Dabbagh on her Facebook page at: http://www.facebook.com/maureen.dabbagh.

Communication is an important part of every healthy relationship, both in and out of the bedroom. Juliana teaches us how to communicate our sexual desires openly with our new partner and shares ways to keep the romance alive for years to come.

Communicating your needs can be done verbally or non-verbally, the important part is that you and your partner understand what each other's needs are.  Common stressors such as money problems or work issues can be enemies of sexual desire and Juliana shares how to put your problems on hold, if but for a short while, so you can enjoy healthy sex and intimacy with your partner.

In this episode of The Intelligent Divorce with Mark Banschick M.D., we explore Parental Alienation with clinical and forensic psychologist, Dr. Abe Worenklien.

Parental alienation is a social dynamic, generally occurring due to divorce or separation, when a child expresses unjustified hatred or unreasonably strong dislike of one parent, making access by the rejected parent difficult or impossible. These feelings may be influenced by negative comments by the other parent and by the characteristics, such as lack of empathy and warmth, of the rejected parent.

Many people learned of parental alienation when a tape of actor, Alec Baldwin, was leaked to the press by his former wife. To the uninformed ear, Alec sounded overly harsh in a message he left to his ten-year old daughter.  Alec, apologetic for his harsh words, explains his behavior as a result of the growing frustration of being a "targeted" parent in his book A Promise to Ourselves: A Journey Through Fatherhood and Divorce. (This book is available in our bookstore under the "Recommended Reading" tab).

This is a "must hear" program for any parent going through divorce and Dr. Worenkien provides insight of why a seemingly "normal" parent might attempt to drive their child away from their biological mother or father during or after divorce.

In this episode of The Smart Divorce with Deborah Moskovitch, we discuss The Ten Signs that Your Spouse May be Planning to Divorce You.

Many times, especially in long-term relationships, spouses drift apart.  They may not be having sex much, if at all, and their intimate conversations and sharing of day-to-day life experiences may cease to exist.

You would think that these signs, alone, would be enough to cause partners to wonder if their relationship was in trouble.  It seems, however, that this pattern of distancing themselves was a slow, eroding process, and for some, they feel it was the normal progression of a long-term relationship.

If you and your partner have lost the connection that you once shared, it's possible that your partner has considered, or could even be planning, a divorce, without your having any knowledge of it.  Deborah reveals the signs that your spouse might be seeking a divorce, as originally mentioned in The Globe and Mail article, by Tralee Pearce.
