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.
"I am very proud to be part of the National Parents Organization, helping to make shared parenting a reality. Children should have equal access to both parents whenever possible. It makes their lives better, and it ensures a brighter future for everyone in this country. Equal rights for both parents, regardless of gender, is today’s most pressing social issue."
