Media Call Out

Media Call Out

Seeking stories!

PR Agency | Posted 07-02-2014 9:00 AM
Call Out open from 07 February - 7 March 2014

Seeking driving test stories!

I am seeking heart warming stories of people who are wanting to sit their driver's theory test.

Perhaps you know someone who wants to learn to drive, but feels a driver's license is something that's out of their reach? This could your teen son/daughter - or perhaps you would like to sit your driver's theory test.

Some examples could be: Someone living with a disability that wants to learn to drive regardless, someone from a disadvantaged background who wants to be able to drive for financial/lifestyle freedom, or maybe someone who has lost a loved one to a road accident, but has summoned up the courage to learn to drive.

Your story would be used as a case study to be sent to the media and to feature as a testimonial on my client's website.

Successful sources will be compensated

This is a nationwide call out. If this strikes a chord with you, please get in contact.

Close date 7 March 2014

What does it mean to be a single mum?Of course, the


are the most important thing in a single mum's life. Kids are the focus and always have been. But along with the children, there are other matters that can confuse a single mum's life.


plays a big part of a single mother's life, mainly because this is where a large percentage of single mums get their finances from. Centrelink are the source from where the

single mother pension

, or as it is otherwise known, the single parent payment comes from. The single mother pension is a subsistence amount, but just the same, it is money to live on, and so it is important, no matter if it is called single parent payment, single mother pension or whatever Centrelink welfare classes it at the time

Often, single mums come out of a


or defacto relationship only to find that their troubles have just begun, and find that their first step leads them towards Family Law - it's time to engage a lawyer.
There are more than just Centrelink finance problems to worry about, as mentioned before, but also

child custody

issues. Child custody is something that hits right at the heart of

single mums

. If a single mother's ex husband or ex partner has been a domestic violence perpetrator, the mum may be greatly worried about child custody. They worry that their kids won't be safe with their spouse, who has already proven to be abusive because they caused

domestic violence

, which resulted in a divorce or separation.

Even so,

Family Court

will often still order a form of child custody named

Shared Parenting

. Shared Parenting is a form of child custody division of time or parental responsibility between the parents. Mother's often look for a good divorce lawyer to try to avoid share parenting with an abusive ex-spouse after divorce, however in many cases Shared Parenting is still the outcome after the divorce, no matter how good the divorce lawyers have been. They will often settle for visitation at a contact centre or access centre where fathers or mothers are supervised during child custody access.
