Please Note: Change of Venue

On January 17, 2017, activists from across the state of Iowa will meet at the Iowa State Capitol building for a day of sharing personal stories with legislators about why Family Law Reform legislation is needed here and now.

Groups scheduled to share their concerns are

  • Families United Action Network (FUAN)
  • Iowa Family Preservation Project
  • Iowa Citizens for Justice Family Court Reform USA
  • Iowa for Parental Equality

We would like to thank Representative Ruth Ann Gaines and Senator Jason Schulz for reserving the room.

We will be hosting a Legislative Breakfast beginning at 10 AM followed by a presentation by Connie Reguli. NOTE CHANGE of VENUE:  Legislative Dining Room on the Lower Level of the Iowa State Capitol Building.

Connie Reguli has practiced family law throughout Middle Tennessee for over 20 years and has served as a prosecutor in Nashville, Tennessee as well. She has seen real child abuse and convicted a child murderer. She also has the largest verdict awarded to children against their parents for the abuse they suffered in childhood.

Connie has authored over 40 appeals heard before the Tennessee Court of Appeals.

Attorney Reguli says that the child welfare agencies across this country have turned child abuse into an industry and have engaged other profiteers, with the help of federal funding, to create a government sanctioned child trafficking industry.

Connie explains that every state receives millions of dollars from the federal government under Title IV-E of the Social Security Act to aid in the functioning of their individual state agencies. This national funding scheme started in 1974 and has grown over the last 40 years to create a behemoth that now feeds on the removal of children from their homes and places them with strangers.

Connie says the states have become so dependent on the federal funds that they cannot interrupt their ability to continue these procedural and substantive atrocities. She reports that a representative in Tennessee recently tried to pass a bill that would require social workers to audio tape interviews they did with children. The bill died.

Connie feels the agencies do not want real evidence. She says this issue has become a crisis and the people must demand a change; that too much money is at stake to expect the change to come from our leaders. Connie Reguli is the kind of attorney we all need working for us and with us. She has high character and understands the importance of changing laws to protect our families. Connie will be speaking primarily on Title IV D&E Federal Funding as well as judicial immunity and why we must end these practices for the best interest of the children and the community.

This event is a definite "must attend" event for any legislator interested in family preservation, the economy, equality, and protecting our citizens young and old.

We invite the public to join us to share your stories with your legislators in an attempt to bring awareness and increased support for legislative changes THIS YEAR. Please wear the color blue or order a FUAN T-shirt for the occasion here.

Attend and share your stories showing the need for Family Law Reform throughout our custodial/divorce codes, and DHS/CPS practices, procedures, and proceedings. We must share for us to demonstrate the numbers of how this truly affects every member of society. Every story might be different, but they will begin to see the underlying skips in the record of where the system has failed.
