Three example reasons to vote yes on SB186

  • The Children’s Equal Access Act (SB186) incorporates the latest scientific research and creates a rebuttable presumption for equal or approximately equal parenting time between both fit parents.
  • The Children’s Equal Access Act (SB186) is necessary because many judges reduce children’s time with one parent to a mere four to six days per month in 85% of the child custody cases. They automatically assume that the “standard visitation” one-sided custody arrangements promote “stability.” In fact, the loss of the meaningful presence of either a fit mother or father in a child’s life promotes emotional and developmental instability that often manifests in social problems like crime, drug use, teen pregnancies, and school dropouts.
  • The passage of the Children’s Equal Access Act (SB186) will realign Alabama family law and court practices to protect the parent-child relationship as recognized by the U.S. Supreme Court, without infringing on the duties and roles of the judge.


  • The enclosed comparison chart and scientific literature irrefutably reflect SB 186 as the best child custody legislation, thus resulting in better outcomes for children.


ALFRA is an all-volunteer organization. Together, we will make a difference, but we have to let our voices and concerns be heard in Montgomery.
