Fathers and Families” Board Chairman Ned Holstein, M.D., M.S. condemned family courts’ “special interests and archaic teachings” and contrasted family courts’ them with the overwhelming public support for shared parenting on The Jeff Katz Show on AM WXKS 1200 in Boston on Friday, June 17. Holstein noted that when F & F brought the issue to Massachusetts voters in a 2004 ballot initiative, shared parenting won overwhelmingly. He noted, “History is on our side, and we’ll change this.” Katz was sympathetic and called the current Massachusetts family court practices of awarding sole custody to mothers and failing to enforce fathers’ visitation rights a “despicable situation.” To listen to the show, click here.
