On January 22, 2015, Law Firm Newswire published a press release from California Divorce Mediators that highlighted National Parents Organization’s Shared Parenting Report Card.
The release included the following excerpt:
The National Parents Organization (NPO) gave California a “D” in a recently released report card on the state of shared parenting in child custody arrangements across the United States.
According to Orange County divorce mediator Gerald Maggio, the grade is not a reflection on California’s parents, but on California’s divorce courts.
“This report looks at legal statutes and judicial practices in each state to determine how favorable the court system is to shared parenting in child custody cases,” said Maggio of California Divorce Mediators. “In California courts, child custody decisions can be a crapshoot, and that is what the low grade in the report reflects.”
