Would you be surprised to know that there is no law that says a judge must 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. Often they get it wrong, with disastrous results, and those children may be forced to live with someone who has abused or even seuxally assaulted them. Because judges, guardians ad litem, psychologists and other advisors to the courts, don't get it or think the protective parent is lying. It's a tragedy that leaved kids in horrible situations and can set them up for life-long repercussions.

The Safe Child Act could change that.

Andrew Willis, founder of the Stop Abuse Campaign, and Barry Goldstein, nationally recognized domestic violence author, speaker and advocate, will discuss the Safe Child Act, being considered in several state legislatures as a requirement for child custody decisions. Join us as we talk about how this act could help protective parents, dependent children and the social justice system.
