Custody blight

News & Politics

"Custody should be determined on an individual basis, and not subjected to a cookie-cutter approach that presumptive joint custody would have done," writes blogger Trish Wilson of the onerous "Presumptive Joint Custody" bill. In a letter to the California assembly, which helped defeat the bill, she wrote: "Joint custody has been shown to be detrimental to children who are exposed to conflict between their parents." That letter also included an article she wrote on the subject for AlterNet. (Trish Wilson; Correction: In the original post I incorrectly identified Trish as an attorney though she's actually an activist and a writer.)
