CRC's Crossroads of Parenting and Divorce Seminar

An experienced East Rockaway, New York-based attorney, Marc Rovner serves as director of business development with multi-million-dollar title insurance company BETA Abstract, LLC. In addition to his professional pursuits as an attorney, Marc Rovner supports the Children's Rights Council (CRC), which honored him with the Man of the Year Award in 2004.

Established in 1985 with the goal of strengthening families and protecting children's relationships with both parents regardless of their marital status, CRC operates advocacy and access centers that can serve as neutral transfer-of-custody locations and allow for supervised visitations. Additionally, CRC runs programming such as Crossroads of Parenting and Divorce, a four- to six-hour seminar that tackles issues related to what is known as divorce abuse.

While divorce can be tough for all family members, it's the responsibility of the parents to maintain a sense of strength and positivity, as negative attitudes can jeopardize a child's well-being. Divorce abuse happens when parents unintentionally or intentionally create an emotionally abusive environment by refusing to value the other parent, putting the child in the middle of divorce-related conflict, and using the child as leverage in conflicts with the other parent. In the seminar, parents are encouraged to accept responsibility for their actions and create a more nurturing post-divorce environment for their children through communication techniques and other learned skills.

The Importance of Purchasing a Pet from a Rescue Shelter

An accomplished New York attorney, East Rockaway resident Marc Rovner graduated from Boston University with Magna Cum Laude honors in addition to achieving eight consecutive semesters on the dean's list. Currently, Marc Rovner serves as an attorney and director of business development for BETA Abstract in Oceanside, where he is also an active supporter of Puppy Love Pet Rescue.

Over the years, Mr. Rovner has assisted in the adoption of over 100 puppies through his work with Puppy Love Pet Rescue. A nonprofit organization, Puppy Love Pet Rescue provides animal rescue and refuge throughout Ocean, Monmouth, Middlesex, and Union counties in New Jersey. 

The organization’s primary purpose is to coordinate the placement of homeless animals with loving families to avoid abusive situations and euthanasia. By adopting a pet through Puppy Love Pet Rescue, an individual can save two animals. Each adoption opens up space for another animal to be saved. In addition, purchasing from a shelter avoids over breeding and other inhumane conditions that are present in many backyard and commercial canine breeding facilities. Another benefit of adoption is that individuals can avoid the high cost of purchasing a dog with “papers.” For further information on pet adoption, visit
