 Child custody bill, HB 239 placed on the House Judiciary Committee calendar

HB 239 was placed on the House Judiciary Committee calendar for Wednesday, March 1, 2017.

This bill was written by attorneys of the Alabama Law Institute, Family Law Committee. Even though HB 239 suggests that children should have “frequent and continuing” contact with their parents, the bill fails to define “frequent and continuing,” and preserves the status quo of standard visitation, thus unduly restricting a child to 4-6 days a month with one parent.

HB 239 ignores current research and expert opinion. As a result, the bill fails to act in the best interests of the child, fails to equally protect the child’s relationship with both fit parents, and places Alabama children at risk of juvenile incarceration, teen pregnancy, suicide, drug use, and sex trafficking.

You can read the bill in its entirety here.

Representative Jim Hill, retired St. Clair County Circuit Judge, is the sponsor of HB 239.

We ask you to take a moment today to contact as many of these committee members as you can and urge them to vote “NO” on HB 239.
