Alabama Earns a “D” Rating
The state of Alabama receives an unsatisfactory grade from a report issuing state-by-state grades of reviews of child custody statutes. The National Parents Organization announced earlier in the week that Alabama earned a D rating in the release of its 2014 Shared Parenting Report Card. The report reviews nationwide child custody statutes as they relate to shared parenting in instances of divorce and separation. The National Parents Organization 2014 Shared Parenting Report Card assigns each state a grade, A through F, to indicate the best and worst states for shared parenting. Officials say the findings reveal that a majority of states’ statutory provisions are behind the times, with most earning C’s and D’s.
