National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Domestic violence has probably touched your life in one way or another. Nearly three out of four Americans personally know someone who is or has been a victim of  domestic violence. Regardless of your age, your income level, your race or your background, domestic violence can touch your life.

What is Skip Tracing?

Skip Tracing. Have you ever heard someone use this term, but you weren’t really sure what it meant? Today the term is used fairly broadly, so let’s see if I can help clarify it for you.

We tend to meet the people with whom we enter into relationships in the places we hang out. I think that will always be true. Today’s focus seems to be about meeting people online.

Control Issues Can Warn of An Affair

Issues of control are one of the most common problems in a relationship where a partner is cheating. A spouse often monitors or controls phone usage and restricts access to finances and records. They may block the use of family vehicles, or may even keep you or your children from seeing family and  friends.

Often, we find that control issues in marriages are a sign of a long term or chronic cheater, not an individual who made a one time mistake. Most people we talk...
