On February 6, 2015, the San Jose Mercury News in San Jose, California, ran an op-ed titled “California family courts should increase advocacy for shared parenting” by National Parents Organization of California Chair Michelle Glogovac.
In the piece, Glogovac calls for California legislators to consider shared parenting legislation.
“California’s child custody laws late last year received a D in the National Parents Organization’s shared parenting report card — the first study to issue each state a grade on how well laws support shared parenting,” Glogovac wrote. “California must pass legislation that forces the courts to work in the best interest of children, instead of continuing to make life-altering decisions based on outdated models and assumptions.”
