California Senator Rod Wright (D-Los Angeles) has long been a leader in working toward a balanced family law system, and is sponsoring two child support reform bills this year. Fathers and Families’ legislative representative Michael Robinson, in cooperation with the Family Law Executive Committee of the California State Bar, the Public Defenders Association, the Department of Child Support Services, and others, has been instrumental in introducing and working for the passage of child support reform bills in the California 2009-2010 legislative session.
The first of these bills to pass is SB 580, a bill to ensure that noncustodial parents aren’t saddled with an unreasonably high percentage of their children’s medical care costs. Governor Schwarzenegger signed SB 580 last week.
We thank Senator Wright and Robinson for their successful work on this bread and butter issue for California child support obligors.
Together with you in the love of our children,
Glenn Sacks, MA
