Are you feeling overwhelmed because...

You are going to be a parent with someone who might not be right for you long term?

You know nothing about child custody law, child support payments, or even where to begin learning?

You can't sleep at night pondering all the "what if" questions and mounting legal bills?

You want a healthy co-parenting situation for your child but the relationship is quickly deteriorating?

About us

About ten years ago, we each had children with people we did not end up marrying.  We remember all the sleepless nights and how hard it was to find straight answers. 

Lawyers talked in circles and charged a fortune.  Divorced friends never understood the unique challenges that we faced.

After several court battles and making many rookie mistakes, we finally found our way to healthy relationships with our kids and co-parents. 

Then, we found each other, got married, and had a child together.  Now, we want to help you avoid the mistakes we made and find a better way through this difficult time.   

-Jessica & Jim Braz

What they say about us and our book

- Francesca Santacrose, LMFT

I often see the emotional toll that custody battles can have on unmarried parents and their children in my behavioral health practice.


The material in Baby Out of Wedlock can make a difference in both the parents' and their children's long-term mental health.  


-- Francesca Santacroce, LMFT, owner of Serenity Behavioral Health

My documentaries focus on what can happen in a worse case situation.


Unmarried parents who read Baby Out Of Wedlock are taking a first step in the right direction.
