Aug. 13, 2018-Violence and abuse could rebut a presumption for equal shared parenting

Domestic violence and child abuse are issues that proponents of shared parenting take very seriously.

Witnessing violence is a form of emotional child abuse, and all children under a rebuttable presumption would be afforded this protection.
