Parental Custody law reform


#1

Dear Jumper:

Greetings. Thanks for letting us know about this article, as we were just talking about this new theory of presuming 50-50 time yesterday in the office. What I see is that the 50-50 presumption is looking at the parents’ rights, while the best interests of the child is a focus on the children. I don’t know where this action will take us, but it will be interesting to see. Are you thinking of trying to get into the lawsuit if it hits NC?

I thought about it. If I were to join the lawsuit, what do I need to do? I live in Oklahoma but my kids live in NC. My divorce was filed and finalized in NC. Would I join the lawsuit with others in NC or from here in OK? What fees would be needed up front?

Dear Jumper:

I honestly don’t know how to enter this lawsuit or anything else about it other than the artcile you cited in your post. I would assume that you need to contact the lawfirm that is pursuing this action. Best of luck.
