Action Needed To Change the Child Custody Law

Great news!  Bipartisanship legislation introduced to protect children’s relationships with both parents.

A bill known as the “Children’s Equal Access Act” has been filed as Senate Bill 186 (“SB 186”).  In general terms, what does SB 186 do?


The Children’s Equal Access Act (SB 186) is a bill that incorporates research-based recommendations from the Alabama Law Institute Family Law Standing Committee, as well as research-based conclusions from the 40 studies and consensus of over 100 social scientists regarding child custody. The 40 studies and 112 experts illustrate that “shared parenting should be the norm for parenting plans for children of all ages and produce better outcomes for children compared to current use, “standard visitation”.

You can read the bill in its entirety here.
