HOUSE LAWMAKERS ARE DISCUSSING A SHARED PARENTING BILL FOR CASES OF DIVORCE. 

 

THE LEGISLATION REQUIRES COURTS TO PRESUME THAT BOTH MOM AND DAD SHOULD HAVE EQUAL TIME WITH THEIR CHILDREN WHEN THEY GET DIVORCED. IF A JUDGE DEVIATES FROM A 50-50 SPLIT, THEY HAVE TO ISSUE A WRITTEN STATEMENT EXPLAINING WHY SAYS ILLINOIS FATHERS FOR EQUALITY PRESIDENT CHAD LOUDERMILK.

 

 

 

REPRESENTATIVE LINDSAY PARKHURST OF KANKAKEE IS CRITICAL OF THE MEASURE.

 

 

 

THE IDEA IS TO PREVENT A PARENT FROM BEING ALIENATED FROM THEIR CHILD. THE JUDGE WOULD CONSIDER OTHER FACTORS INCLUDING WHERE THE KID GOES TO SCHOOL, DISTANCE BETWEEN PARENT’S HOMES AND IF THERE ARE ANY SAFETY CONCERNS LIKE ABUSE.
