The Alabama Senate has overwhelmingly passed a strong shared parenting bill. SB 266 passed the Senate by a vote of 25 – 4 and now goes on to the House for consideration.
Senator Larry Stutts is the lead sponsor of SB 266. He had this to say about it and shared parenting:
“Parental equality should be the starting point for every child custody case,” Stutts remarked. “Ultimately, it’s about the child having a right to equal time with both of his or her mother, father, and extended family, provided that both parents are responsible adults.”
