RJ Jaramillo single dad founder and regular contributor RJ Jaramillo is back with his video blog, this time documenting what it was like to walk to his daughter to school for the last time.

"I knew it was coming but I still can’t describe the feelings," Jaramillo said. "We were both crying. For every dad out there that knows this or has experienced this, you know what I’m going through. And for every dad that’s got a younger child, there's a day on the calendar some day in the future where you have this last chance, this last opportunity to walk your child to school."

Happy Father's Day to all divorced dads out there celebrating a special holiday this Sunday. I wish all dads a special day filled with quality family time and loving memories.

I know I will be celebrating this year with my parents and children out in my back yard, (pool side and something savory in the barbeque).

As our attention turns to Father’s Day, I wanted to share some of the changes I have recently discovered with my fatherhood.

family law reformThe controversial issues of parenting time and decision-making over children produced the expected perennial round of family law reform initiatives this legislative season, including the states of Alabama, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Ohio, Tennessee, and Wisconsin, some of which may see passage.

Many of the proposals gained more coverage, more sponsors, and wider support than ever before. However, history shows us that while "radical" reform proposals energize activists, they are not likely to ever see a governor’s pen.

With the arrival of summer recesses, it may be time for activists to reflect: what reforms are within reach and how might they be achieved?

divorce stepfamilyThe law works to protect marriage and nuclear or traditional families.

Stepfamilies, however, are considered incomplete institutions to be ignored and as stigmatized groups, less functional and more problematic than nuclear families. 

The "progress" made in expanding the stepparent’s role is primarily geared toward increasing stepparent financial obligations without increases in parental rights or recognition of the important roles that many stepparents play in their stepchildren’s lives.

One in every two first marriages ends in divorce, and (as if that's not bad enough) the divorce rate goes up exponentially with each subsequent remarriage.

It's not that couples are incapable of making a succeeding marriage work; it's that they are not adequately prepared for the problems that will inevitably arise. 

There will be conflicts between you and your beloved on how you are going to deal with finances, holidays, child visitations, co-parenting your stepchildren, etc.

You need to know how to handle it.
