About Families United Action Network.

Welcome to the crusade for children and families! We are glad to have you aboard! We are very hopeful this project will help us to gain ground in the mission for children and families both here in Iowa and throughout the world by building a network together.

Family United the Action Network (FUAN) is a newly formed organization in Iowa with the goals of changing legislation in the state of Iowa, the United States, and the world in order to help preserve and protect children and families while creating reciprocity, precedents, and unity for all. We have been working hard to create the structure for a new nonprofit organization to help us build a base, recruit members, meet the needs of those struggling, and lobby for legislative changes.

Hello Family Law Crusaders.


By now, I'm sure you are aware that there are many issues to be dealt with within the family law reform battle. There are also many groups fighting for many different but all key parts of this reform. Even so, many feel like a lone-wolves wandering all alone. Well, we hope to stop that feeling NOW! We want to gather groups from all the family law related topics like Parental Alienation, Parental Kidnapping, Alimony Reform, Visitation Rights, DHS/CPS Reform, Fathers', Mothers', Grandparents, Gender Rights, Extended Family Visitation Rights, and many other varied topics related in overall family law reform. We feel that we are much stronger together than we are separate! Money and numbers are how the game is played. Uniting our numbers and unifying our message is be the best way to fight for all of these causes all at once.

Mission and Values.

To preserve and protect children & families through repairing and rebuilding current structures & organizations, to create a solid foundation for Iowa's Families and for future generations.

We want to gather groups from all the family law related topics such as parental alienation, parental kidnapping, alimony reform, visitation rights, DHS/CPS reform, fathers', mothers', gender rights, extended family visitation rights, and all the other various topics related in overall family law reform. We feel that we are much stronger together than we are separate!

Our children are the future. Too often they are damaged by parents who use them as pawns in a power struggle before, during and after divorce.
Our kids need ways to not feel alienated by their parents. Parents often need to grow up and put their children’s needs before their own.

There are too many issues to list right here, but you’ll find them elsewhere on our site.  The damage to families that has occurred by poorly written and antiquated laws is mind boggling.

The effects are seen in the news every day. Many of the stories are similar… only the names of the victims changes.

FUAN’s main goal is reduce these atrocities by reform of these destructive laws.

Many times, parents are ill-equiped to deal with the responsibilities of parenthood.  Up until 20 years ago, there was not much written on the topic.

Now, there is a large amount of advice for parents… as well as support groups to help them over the rough spots.

FAUN encourages parents who need guidance to do so.  It’s the loving thing to do.

The FUAN Board.

President – Nicholas Dreeszen.

Nick does not need a law degree to see that our legal system needs reform from top to bottom. Through trial and error, Nick has learned how to turn failure into success by learning the lesson, getting back up, and persevering in a new way with new insight.

“Thinking outside of the box” is a trite phrase for describing creative solutions to standard problems, yet Nick Dreeszen looks for, and finds those kinds of solutions. He is disappointed by common solutions yielding ineffective results without lasting results. As President of Families United Action Network, he wants to make a positive difference for families in crisis… one family at a time.
