Howard Law Graduate, Alicia M. Crowe, Esq., releases Real Dads Stand Up

Howard Law Graduate, Alicia M. Crowe, Esq., releases Real Dads Stand Up
Posted By: Jackie O. Asare on December 17, 2007

New York, NY - December 17, 2007 -
"He's just my baby-daddy," a common phrase made popular in a southern hip-hop song almost defines the role single fathers have been reduced to in today's loose family structure. While the wealthy have high-powered attorneys representing them in family court hearings, for the average father, navigating through the legal maze is draining emotionally, physically, and financially.

Howard Law graduate, Attorney/author, Alicia M. Crowe’s new book, Real Dads Stand Up! is a step-by-step easy to read guide which offers single fathers tips and legal insights about child support, parental rights, and custody.

• How to gain and maintain access to your children without going to trial.
• How to avoid the baby mama drama
• How to seek custody or enforce visitation.
• How the child support payment calculated.
• How to avoid the pitfalls of child support enforcement (incarceration/garnishment)

“Real Dads Stand Up! was written to give single fathers a greater understanding of their rights under the legal system," explains Crowe who has represented fathers and mothers in family court cases for over a decade.

“As a result of the way the system is structured, fathers face an uphill battle just to have minimal contact with their children. The legal system seems to emphasize child support over a father's right to co-parent his children," Crowe explains. "I created this book as a way to inform, inspire, empower, and challenge fathers to step up to the plate and become active, responsible, and nurturing adults in their children's lives.” She discovered that there are many men who want to play a more active role, but are denied the opportunity, either by the other parent and/or the legal system.

Currently a Deputy Town Attorney in the Town of Ramapo, Alicia M. Crowe, Esq. is a partner in the law firm of Crowe & Crowe with her identical twin sister, Alice T. Crowe. She holds a B.A. Degree in Political Science from Adelphi University and a J.D. Degree from Howard University School of Law.



Crowe is a sought after legal expert on the topic and has been featured several times as a professional expert on BETJ's "My Two Cents", “The Wendy Williams Experience” where her book was selected as July 2007’s “Book Of The Month,” Rev. Al Sharpton's radio show "Sharp Talk," WRKS 98.7 Kiss FM's "Open Line," Power 105.1's "The Power Hour with Minister Kevin,” WBLS' "Express Yourself," and WLIB's "Mind Flight,” both hosted by Gary Byrd, The Bev Smith Show on American Urban Radio, Pacifica Radio WBAI-FM, and Krights Radio.com. The book has also been discussed on The Tom Joyner Morning Show and featured on AOL Black Voices, Allhiphop.com, My Brothers.com and more.

Alicia Crowe is also a contributor to best seller, I Got Your Back: A Father and Son Keep It Real About Love, Fatherhood, Family and Friendship written by Eddie Levert with his late son Gerald Levert and Lyah Beth LeFlore.

Real Dads Stand Up is a part of an ongoing movement to rebuild a community and the lives of children by encouraging and empowering the responsible fathers in our community.

Crowe has developed a unique series of fatherhood forums and workshops aimed to educate and assist fathers in taking their parental responsibility. Some of her forums/workshops are designed to reach those fathers who have been absent from their children’s lives or are just regaining entry into the mainstream and want to reconnect with their children.
