Legislative Alert: CALL NOW! – SB186

The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to consider SB186 (Children’s Equal Access Act) for a vote Wednesday, March 15, 2017 at 12:00 pm. There is also a public hearing for SB191 at 12-noon (Please attend to be a silent witness).

We would ask individuals to take a moment to call or email the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and urge them to vote “YES” on SB 186 and “NO” on SB191.

  • 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”.
  • Senate Bill 191(SB 191) is a custody bill written by attorneys of the Alabama Law Institute, Family Law Committee. SB191 fails to incorporate the scientific data that has conclusively shown that shared parenting produces better outcomes for children (success in life) compared to our currently utilized “standard visitation”.


You can read the bill in its entirety here.

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.
