New York's Shared Parenting Bill has reached a critical point and we want to help give the bill a strong push forward. ...I sent an email to the NY legislators, as he recommends.
Today joint custody is rare in New York and sole custody for mothers is the norm. A330 would "require the court to award custody to both parents in the absence of allegations that shared parenting would be detrimental to the child." It would place the burden of proof that shared parenting would be detrimental where it should be--on the parent requesting sole custody. ...
A330 is opposed by the usual suspects--feminists and divorce attorneys.
