Legislative Alert: CALL NOW! Action is needed today to move Senate Bill 186 out of committee!!!!

Child custody bill, SB 186 placed on the Senate Judiciary Committee calendar

A bipartisan bill known as the “Children’s Equal Access Act,” SB 186 was filed February 14, 2017 and placed on the Senate Judiciary Committee calendar for Wednesday, March 1, 2017.


This bill will create an equal starting point in all child custody cases for children and their parents. As a result, the bill will equally protect children’s relationships with both of their fit parents; and reduce placing Alabama children at risk for juvenile imprisonment, teen pregnancy, suicide, drug use, and sex trafficking.


The Children’s Equal Access Act, SB186 incorporates the latest research and creates “a rebuttable presumption in favor of a division of equal or approximately equal time between two fit parents and children”.

You can read the bill in its entirety here.

Senator Larry Stutts is the sponsor (with 9 co-sponsors) has requested SB186 be placed on the Judiciary Committee agenda for a vote March 1, 2017.

We ask you to take a moment today to contact as many of these committee members as you can and urge them to vote “YES” on SB 186. Communicate that you deeply appreciate their commitment to doing what’s right in Montgomery; by putting children’s and families first, please vote “YES” on SB186.
