Vonage, The Best Phone Service For NCPs

Those of you that have been on the receiving end of the nasty part of divorce and child custody already know that if someone wants to hurt you, the system will let it. Emotionally, mentally, physically and especially financially. Getting displaced from your home can be very unsettling.

These things known, in an era of cell phones and who is the best, we have to remember land lines and our homes or what may be a temporary home. With cell phones, sure they are great to have. But no matter how many minutes your plan has, minutes is the key. They run out. Having cost effective home phone service is a wonderful thing, but as I said, getting displaced from your home can be very unsettling. Thus, the wonderful world of Vonage.

Why Vonage you might ask? Several reasons make Vonage the choice for me and I say, I think Vonage may be the right choice for you. Imagine coming home from work, the person who used to say "I love you" now has you served with an order of protection. You are devastated, you are now separated from your home for at least a short spell, maybe longer. You need a place to stay, a base of operation regardless of how short or long the term. You've been cut off from home, cut off from communications. And heck, she's got an order of protection against you so it's not like she's going to be forwarding phone messages to you, right? Vonage can solve that problem for the most part. Let me explain...

In today’s era, high speed broadband and DSL services are offered in many areas, some even offer their own home phone service but none truly offer the luxury that Vonage has. That luxury is “portability.” You can't pick up Comcast and take it with you. AT&T Yahoo DSL the same. Pac-Bell, Southwestern Bell, Mama and Papa Bell, Taco Bell, all are plugged into a residence. Vonage is not.

Imagine the scenario, you are now staying at your sister Debbie’s for a few months, trying to recover from the devastation, getting back on your feet. Sure, sis has been great to help you out, but imposing on her for everything would be inconsiderate. You have to call co-workers, friends, colleagues and lawyers. Monopolizing your sister's phone may be something that would try her patience. You need a communications solution that lifts some of the burden and again, I see Vonage as the light at the end of that tunnel.

Staying at your sisters, sure she has the land line, again, it exists with the potential of being monopolized by yourself. But, alas, sis has high-speed internet service from "xyz cable." While staying at your sisters, you don't want to order phone service from a hardwire company. After all, once you are gone, you have to go through the gyrations of calling, scheduling termination or movement of the line. Too many headaches in dealing with the hard-line. You could impose on your sister to order phone service on her cable service, but again, an imposition like this is best avoided. And again, if she let you order it, the headache of cancellation or movement of the line becomes a logistical pain in the butt. Vonage solves those problems.

Going to and ordering phone service is the solution. They send you a router that you plug into the high speed internet. Tapping into your sisters high-speed is a no-brainer and wouldn't affect her in anyway. You don't interrupt TV, there is nothing to install aside from plugging in the router and your router is absolutely portable. No need to call and cancel or move service. Just unplug and go. Where ever there is a high-speed connection, there is phone service. AT&T can't brag about that, neither can the cable companies who are offering their own phone service.

Me, I have Vonage and I enjoy my service. Feature rich with call waiting, forwarding, conference calling, voice mail, caller ID, voice mail, free international long distance (to some places like Italy, France and the UK), cheap international long distance to many places (that is nice is you are an international caller) and free nationwide long distance (including international to Canada and Mexico) . These are just some of the numerous features Vonage offers. And for only $24.99 a month (unlimited plan), plus taxes, you can't beat it. As a Non-Custodial parent who has had my life shredded, Vonage was a cost effective communications solution that kept my lines of communication wide open, and at a great price.

If you are displaced from home or transient in some fashion and want to establish a small piece of stability, then Vonage phone service is that piece of stability you don't have to worry about. Visit them today at and get connected. Vonage truly goes where you go.

Should judicial discipline be taken out of the hands of the judiciary?

Should judges be held accountable for allowing lawyers to file false, perjured and frivilous pleadings with no penalty?

Should applications for Child Support be denied without a divorce decree or separation order of support? (Married/Divorced Parents Only)

Should a parent who makes false allegations of child sexual abuse for the purposes of child custody get only Supervised Visitation?

Perjury in family court should be aggressively prosecuted?

Perjured applications for child support should be denied and aggressively prosecuted?

It should be mandated that child support arrears should be prohibited if a parent has interfered with custody & visitation during dissolution or custody proceedings?

I believe that child support arrearages given to a parent who has interfered with custody only encourages future denials of custody & visitation?

Do you believe that Judges and Prosecutors who refuse to enforce child custody are responsible for the escalation of domestic violence by non-custodial parents?

Do you believe that interference with custody is a willful action by the offending parent to cause significant mental & emotional distress on the victim child(ren)?

Do you believe that interference with custody is a willful action by the offending parent to inflict significant mental & emotional distress on the non-custodial parent?
