About 20 Michiganders who believe that shared parenting should be the starting point in divorce cases with children lobbied lawmakers today with new polling data.
Based on what they got back from the Marketing Resource Group, 84 percent of Michigan voters support children receiving equal time with both parents after a divorce.
Advocates made about 25 stops to member offices today as the House considers legislation that would require a child's time be split equally.
"They have heard from the judges. They've heard from family law attorneys. Now they are hearing from the citizens of Michigan," said Keith LEDBETTER, the spokesperson for the National Parents Organization of Michigan.
