Whether a parent or child has a devastating story as a result of the family courts keeping a loving parent away from a child or a grandparent has an uplifting story made possible by shared parenting after divorce or separation, each personal tale is important. Collectively, all child custody experiences play a critical role in efforts to move family court reform forward. National Parents Organization leaders working for changes that support the best interests of families point to these first-hand stories as evidence of how our nation’s family courts impact lives.
"There is nothing more tragic than a child who has been abandoned by his father, except those children who are prevented by judicial neglect, from being a part of their fathers' lives."
