About Us

My name is Rick Nischalke. My wife Barb and I have been working together to help families that have been involved in high conflict divorces since January of 2008.

Rick and Barb Nischalke

I was in a difficult marriage for 11 years. We divorced in 1997. During a custody battle that ensued 2 years later I lost everything. Including all contact with my sons. They were ages 4 & 7 at the time. As you can imagine, I was emotionally and financially devastated. I was angry and totally disillusioned with my experience in the family court system. I was naïve enough to think that I had rights that couldn’t be violated, and that the truth would matter in court. I was dead wrong.

In 2008 we started a ministry called Keeping Families Connected. We provide resources to families involved in a high conflict divorce and to those experiencing Parental Alienation. The response we received was overwhelming. My experience was not an isolated incident. What happened to me was all too common. We’ve been visited by families from more than 176 countries. We’ve had as many as 4,000 visitors to our site in a single month.

In the process of helping these families, we’ve learned what works best and what doesn’t work at all in the divorce process, both in and out of court. We’ve written 2 books. We’ve been interviewed on the radio several times. We’ve spoken at large churches on multiple occasions. Our videos have been viewed well over 250,000 times around the world. Several videos have been translated into other languages by viewers from other countries.

We’ve also worked with our church for many years leading a Divorce Care program. These sessions are designed to help people going through a divorce to emotionally recover and heal from the effects of a divorce. Keep this paragraph?

Our mission now is to help families stay connected (to whatever degree that’s possible), despite the difficult challenges that divorce brings. And to help them avoid making fatal mistakes that can cost them their life savings, their children, and all hope.

If you’re looking for practical and effective advice to help you though your divorce you’ve come to the right place.
