When calling your House Representative, consider using one of the following reasons when asking him/her to vote NO on House Bill 239, as currently written:

1.  Vote NO on House Bill 239, as currently written. House Bill 239 is a custody bill that fails to incorporate the scientific data, which shows that equally shared custody is in the best interest of children.

2.   Vote NO on House Bill 239, as currently written, as  House Bill 239 maintains the status quo of a child spending 48-96 hours a month with one parenting.

3.  Vote NO on House Bill 239, as currently written. House Bill 239 excludes the presumption that equal parenting time is in the best interest of the child.

4.  Vote NO on House Bill 239, as currently written, as House Bill 239 does not define “frequent and continuing contact” with each parent.

When emailing your House Representative, consider using the following reason(s) when asking him/her to vote NO on House Bill 239, as currently written:

Dear House Representative:

Thank you for serving the people of Alabama. As you move forward this legislative season, there will be numerous bills, up for discussion and a vote. We ask that careful consideration be given to [all] child custody bills, especially those like House Bill 239, which seem flawed. House Bill 239 does the following:

1.  Fails to protect the parent-child relationship by neglecting current research
2.  Excludes the presumption that equal parenting time is in the best interest of
the child
3.  Dismisses the need to define “frequent and continuing contact” with each
parent

With that, if House Bill 239 were to adopt the suggested amendments [see attached], House Bill 239 would move closer to current scientific research, thus creating a more equal starting point in child custody cases. Also, by adopting the [attached] amendments, House Bill 239 would more likely equally protect the child’s relationship with both [fit] parents.

In closing, I pray that the best interests of all children in Alabama prevail, and that due deference to the rights and privileges of all children and parents in Alabama is granted.
