Parenting Rights Institute has undertaken an advocacy project for Upstate New York residents to help prevent the spread of coronavirus from America’s Epicenter to other parts of the country.


Today, April 1, 2020, we found it necessary to generate a petition to the president, New York’s governor, FEMA and relevant public officials to protect the people of upstate New York and other states.

Yesterday, New York’s governor announced the transfer of infected patients to upstate hospitals. This goes against the grain of federal emergency assistance focused on containing the spread in its place.

For example, the USNS Comfort and Army Corp medical facility at Javitts Center are limited to non-infected patients. Their purpose is to relieve overwhelmed facilities to help those needing other services.

On the same day, Dr. William Haselton, a Harvard medical school professor who created models to gauge the spread of coronavirus in Wuhan, China, warned that we are going the way of Italy due to vast shortcomings in contact tracing.

He also emphasized that we have much to learn about this new microbe, citing its mutation into eight different strains having particular impact here. So worried was he that he began wearing face masks everywhere he went.

If we do not take action upstate, all of New York will be the epicenter. We love our families as much as they do downstate, but elevating the spread will only cause a second wave of infections when victims return to their homes there.

A virus more contagious than anything we have faced, this is no time to experiment on its killer potential in remote communities. By signing, you will also see how our petition is seeking stronger travel bans to protect other states.

Consequently we ask you to sign this petition using the link below. We also urge you to get others to do the same. With time made available during home confinement, you could save countless lives.



A Proven Advocacy Team

Welcome to Parenting Rights Institute, a public interest organization founded in 2010 to assist moms, dads and families abused by our nation’s divorce and family courts. We have provided valuable services and saved victims thousands of dollars in fees while reducing  the stress and anxieties which the current custody, support and conflict system inflicts. Indeed we have literally saved lives!

This is because our work is uniquely tailored to secure justice for each situation through formal inquiries, dispute mediation, professional reports, expert referrals, published documentaries, education programs, book publishing and other means for avoiding costly litigation or exposing corruption. A sampling of our offerings is found among the pages on this site.

Due to the unique nature of our work, we cannot rely on government funds or influences. We are highly independent and beholden to no one who could compromise our loyalties to you. That means we depend on donations and purchases to carry out our critical work. We are serious minded and will try to assist you at no charge only in emergency situations.

Think of us as a “Judicial Watch” of the divorce and family court industry. We are not a law firm, public defender or legal aid service. We do not provide legal advice or representation, referring such matters discreetly to those committed to our cause. That cause is devoted to reforming a system that is increasingly lucrative for everyone but the parents of our children.

Parenting Rights Institute is regularly seeking investors to improve and expand the work we do across the country. This  website was recently introduced with our latest literary feature, a shocking book entitled: Satan’s Docket: Corruption and Carnage in America’s Divorce Industry. Get the details by clicking on to our Satan’s Docket page above!

We don’t fool around when it comes to parental rights. They are being eroded with each passing day. We offer professional services to protect you from this ominous trend including a review of your situation no matter how complex. We will even come to your court if necessary to expose any corruption which you suspect is occurring there.

Kindly consider a donation here even if you have no need of our programs or services for the sake of all those victims who do need us.
