Preserve Fundamental Rights

  • A child has a fundamental right to spend time with both of his or her parents.

 

  • The U.S. Supreme Court recognizes that the relationship between parent and child must be constitutionally protected in order to
    • preserve the child’s right to have two parents guide in their upbringing and care for their well-being.
    • preserve the child’s right to equal access to both fit parents.
    • preserve the child’s relationship with the extended families of each parent.
    • preserve the child’s right to benefit from the resources of each parent.

 

  • The data is irrefutable; equal and shared parenting ensures that children have the best possible environment for success when both parents guide their upbringing and care for their well-being.
