Three Time Super Bowl Winner to Speak at Parenting Rights Conference

It’s Official!!!

Three time Super Bowl winner Tim McKyer will be speaking at the Parenting Rights Convention to be held at the Hotel Utica in upstate New York on April 15 – 17, 2011.

Tim is a former professional American football player who was selected by the San Francisco 49ers in the third round of the 1986 NFL Draft. A 6’0″, 174-lb. cornerback from the University of Texas at Arlington, McKyer played in 12 NFL seasons for 7 different teams from 1986 to 1997. McKyer prepped at Lincoln High School in Port Arthur, Texas.

His best year as a pro came during his rookie season with San Francisco, intercepting 6 passes for 33 yards and 1 touchdown. He was an All Pro Corner for 2 NFL seasons and was named to the “All Madden Team”. During the Carolina Panthers inaugural season, he intercepted a pass and scored on a ninety-six yard interception run for a touchdown to defeat the Super Bowl Champ San Francisco 49ers. A three-time Super Bowl winner with the 49ers in 1988 and 1989 and the Denver Broncos in 1997, McKyer became a journeyman throughout the 1990’s, bouncing from team to team until he ended his NFL career after the 1997 season. Though he is most likely remembered for giving up the game winning touchdown to Tony Martin in the 1994 AFC Championship Game while with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The touchdown allowed the heavy underdog San Diego Chargers reach Super Bowl XXIX in one of the biggest upsets in AFC Championship history.

Tim Mckyer is an advocate for Fathers rights. He actively speaks at engagements around the country and has been instrumental in lobbying state law makers for more Pro Father legislation.

Parenting Rights Convention Set for April 15-17, 2011 in Utica, NY

EVENT TO FEATURE THREE TIME NFL SUPER BOWL WINNER,  CONSTITUTIONAL  RIGHTS  ATTORNEY,  PURPLE  HEART  SOLDIER  AND REFORM  LEADERS.

All parenting groups and child advocates are invited to attend the first ever Parenting Rights Convention to be held at the Hotel Utica in upstate New York on April 15 – 17, 2011. Friday evening will feature a social “meet and greet” at 7 pm followed by a morning brunch and open hearing beginning at 2 pm on Saturday. At 7 pm the same day, a planning session will occur among group leaders and activists behind a rally at the nation’s capitol later this year. A strategy meeting will conclude the weekend on Sunday at 1 pm.

The Saturday hearing is the highlight of this convention. Guest speakers will be followed by an open microphone period to receive testimony from attendees, victims and group leaders. Civil Rights Attorney/Advocate Leon Koziol, J.D. is expected to consolidate presentations into a formal report to be submitted to the President, U.S. Justice Department, Secretary of Health and Human Services and select members of Congress. Copies will also be made available to attendees for distribution to state governments across the country.

The goal of this convention is to secure the fundamental right of parents to raise their own children free from undue state interference and to promote fair and meaningful parent-child relationships in separated household settings. The agenda will focus upon a full range of constitutional rights being lost to oppressive child control laws, draconian money collection practices, gender discrimination and the criminalization of mainstream “non-custodial” parents.

This Convention was first announced in November, 2010 and is being sponsored by the Parenting Rights Institute. Planning sessions were held at the Plaza Hotel in New York City on December 26-27, 2010 followed by weekly nationwide teleconferences in January, February and March, 2011. Once again, it is important to emphasize that this Convention is designed to make a profound statement and promote a united stand against divorce and family court abuses in our states. All constructive ideas and assistance are welcome. This is your opportunity to finally be heard and become a part of nationwide reform.

The site was selected based on driving proximity to metropolitan areas in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New England and metropolitan New York. Rail service is walking distance from the Hotel and discount lodging rates of $99 are being offered for this event. One hour service from Syracuse Hancock Airport is also available. Contact Hotel Utica at (315) 724-7829 to confirm reservations. Register your attendance or presentation through this site or dial the Institute direct at (315) 507-3103.

——— FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE———

February 1, 2011, Old Forge, NY – Civil rights advocate Leon Koziol, J.D., announced today that he is developing a critical and timely information product for self represented parties in child custody and support cases.

Koziol, who has gained widespread recognition for his parenting rights efforts in federal and state courts, emphasized that this self-help package will save mainstream parents thousands of dollars in litigation costs while at the same time giving them a proper working knowledge of the court system. The package will even benefit those having legal representation by enabling them to better evaluate their lawyers and options.

“This one of a kind product has emerged from twenty five years of experience in divorce, custody and Constitutional law”, said Koziol. “For about the cost of a single hour in lawyer consultation fees, subscribers can gain thousands of dollars in benefits.” Skiing in the Adirondack Mountains recently, Mr. Koziol was approached for a quick comment (see video).

A tentative release date is scheduled for early spring 2011. Those looking to be notified of a pre-launch discounted price special are encouraged to send an email to admin@leonkoziol.com with the words “notify me about pre-launch special” in the subject line before February 15, 2011. Please be sure to include your name, address and telephone number.

Parenting Rights Convention Announced

In what may be the first of its kind, a national parenting rights convention is being scheduled for April 15-18, 2011 in upstate New York. Following through on commitments made at a planning session held recently at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, civil rights advocate Leon Koziol, J.D. has offered a location not far from the site of the first national women’s rights convention at Seneca Falls, New York. According to Koziol, “we’ve come a long ways since 1848, but the civil rights abuses upon parents and their children have reached intolerable extremes. State intrusions upon family privacy have led to an alarming breakdown in the productivity, health and moral fiber of an entire nation”.

Originally targeted to occur in metropolitan Philadelphia, organizers were unable to secure a suitable hotel and conference center with limited resources. The idea was first launched in November, 2010 after Mr. Koziol filed a comprehensive test case in federal district court challenging the abuses found in our domestic relations courts. Hancock Airport in Syracuse is the flight destination, nearby Turning Stone Casino provides world class entertainment, and the site hotel is a four or five hour drive from Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Cleveland. High speed rail service makes a stop which is walking distance to the hotel with group lodging rates at a fraction of the cost found in major cities. It promises to be an event which would impress Susan B. Anthony herself.

This long overdue convention will address parental alienation, gender discrimination, abusive child control laws and the bankrupting of mainstream parents. A primary goal is to organize a June rally in Washington D.C.  A series of regularly scheduled conference calls accommodating as many as 100 participants at a time will commence on Wednesday, February 2, 2011 at 7 pm eastern time for momentum building purposes. The conference dial-in number is: (605) 477-3000 and the participant access code is: 561737#).  In order to  gauge preliminary interest in both events, please email your reservation to admin@leonkoziol.com using the word “Reservation” in the subject line (be sure to include all contact information as well as which event you’re interested in). On a separate note, Mr. Koziol will appear on a national radio program sponsored by www.syndicatednews.net in Florida this Friday at 8 P.M. The convention and related subjects will be featured in this one hour program which can be accessed directly on line. In addition, you can view a recent YNN news story on our site.

News Media Features Story Highlighting Koziol’s Valuable Work

Congratulations to the staff at Your News Now (YNN) for carrying an outstanding segment which featured the valuable work that civil rights advocate Leon Koziol is doing with respect to preserving parent child relationships. Unlike other news outlets which seem to only care about the sensationalistic details surrounding Mr. Koziol’s personal life and professional career, YNN took the time to produce and prepare a segment that focused upon both the substance and relevance of Mr. Koziol’s work as it relates to the long over due need for domestic relations law reform in private child rearing matters. As these same news outlets continue to suppress and marginalize the importance of such mainstream issues, it’s refreshing to see an organization like YNN report the news in an objective, unbiased and informative manner all in an effort to better educate their viewers.

Miracle On 34th Street

Okay, so we don’t have a 34th Street where I’m from. We’re more like the rest of America when we reach Ninth Ave in nearby Yorkville (not the one in Manhattan). Anyway, if you’ve been following our updates for the meeting this Sunday in NYC, I submitted a petition for writ of certiorari to the United States Supreme Court on Wednesday (a request for review of one of my test cases for parenting equity in our courts). Now for the rest of the story. It almost didn’t happen, and I wish I had a nice professional explanation on how it miraculously did minutes before a 6 pm deadline. But I don’t. Simply stated, it must have had something to do with that teleconference this past Sunday with religious and family rights advocates. Anyway, after working long hours on the project, I discovered on the morning of its due date that the petition did not satisfy certain highly technical print requirements. By 11 am, I nearly abandoned the filing effort because in our small town, there is no print shop capable of assembling 55 booklets of the kind which the Supreme Court requires in a matter of hours. Then a friend at my regular location referred me to a special contact. I quickly called and drove my papers to his shop (we have no traffic problems in our metro area). I then learned that he had completed such a writ project only weeks earlier and reworked the booklets after they had been rejected (giving them a 60 day extension). Imagine the chances of that in our town given the small number of petitions nationwide. Even more fortunate, the two partners had done work for my office when it had a staff and both had experienced parenting injustices among family and friends. They were familiar with my reform movement and had evidently read my full page advertisement which was recently paid for by a former client (available on this site). They dropped everything, directed me to e-mail them certain files, and by the grace of God, the 40 booklets with copies upon adversary counsel were all completed and timely submitted with filing fee. This may not have occurred on 34th Street, but it features the same Christmas “spirit”. Happy Holidays to all of our friends and followers. We look forward to seeing those of you coming to the Plaza Hotel.
