A new bill in Lansing could help give parents the chance to share custody of their children if they have been determined to be fit parents.
It is especially geared to help children get through a process that can be an emotional roller coaster.
“I wouldn’t wish that on my own worst enemy. It’s the hardest thing in the world to wake up everyday without your kids,” said Derek Jaeger, with the National Parents Organization.
He supports the newly proposed bill that would give parents in custody cases equal time with their children. It’s called the Michigan Shared Custody Act.
“It calls for a presumption of equal shared parenting be the starting point,” said Linda Wright, with National Parents Organization.
