Whether a parent or child has a devastating story as a result of the family courts keeping a loving parent away from a child or a grandparent has an uplifting story made possible by shared parenting after divorce or separation, each personal tale is important. Collectively, all child custody experiences play a critical role in efforts to move family court reform forward. National Parents Organization leaders working for changes that support the best interests of families point to these first-hand stories as evidence of how our nation’s family courts impact lives.
"Children deserve both parents. National Parents Organization is committed to making this common-sense concept the norm in the United States. When we succeed, children will no longer be victims of a system that fosters conflict between parents and traumatizes children in the process. No one should have to endure the experiences that I had as a child, or what my daughter has been experiencing for most of her life."
