THE SAFE CHILD ACT

Would you be surprised to know that there is no law that says a judge has to make a kid’s health and safety the first priority when determining custody in a divorce? 

Every day judges decide where a child will live when the parents divorce. It’s always a tough decision, and most people make the most of it because they care about their kids. Often they get it wrong, with disastrous results. And those children may be forced to live with someone who has abused or sexually assaulted them.

Andrew Willis, founder of the Stop Abuse Campaign, and Barry Goldstein, nationally recognized domestic violence author, speaker and advocate, will join us to talk about the Safe Child Act. This act, being considered by state legislatures in Hawaii, Pennsylvania, New York, Texas, Utah and Washington, would make child health and safety the first priority in determining custody.

Andrew was born in Hong Kong went to school in Great Britain and has not stopped travelling ever since. Following time in the British Army, where he reached the rank of Captain, he spent his life practicing integrated marketing communications and marketing, mostly for global brands. He has been recognized with both creative and marketing effectiveness awards and is a frequent speaker at conferences.

Barry Goldstein is a nationally recognized domestic violence author, speaker and advocate.  He is co-chair of the child custody task group for NOMAS and serves as Director of Research for the Stop Abuse Campaign.  Barry Goldstein is the author of the Safe Child Act which is a comprehensive proposal to make family courts safe for children.  He is the author of 5 of the leading books about domestic violence and child custody including The Quincy Solution: Stop Domestic Violence and Save $500 Billion.
