David S. DeLugas

David S. DeLugas, Esq. is a parent and is the Founder and Executive Director of the National Association of Parents, a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable member association that is a voice in the USA for all parents -- mothers and fathers, married and unmarried. The National Association of Parents uses only the U. S. Constitution as the basis for its positions on such parents’ rights issues as a child “unattended” at a playground and the drafting of parenting plans and the associated custody issues. Mr. DeLugas is also a family law attorney, parenting coordinator, mediator, and guardian ad litem.

He earned his B.A. from Duke University and his J.D. from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. A frequent radio talk show guest on issues of parents’ rights, he emphasizes that a parent is not required to be perfect to have the right under our Constitution to be present in his or her child’s life and to decide how to raise his or her child, as long as the parent is not causing harm to the child as shown by clear and convincing evidence.
