For the 2021 Legislative Session, Rep. Erik Mortensen and Rep. Jeremy Munson introduced H.F 963 to amend current statues and presume joint legal and physical custody, because maximizing parenting time between both parents is in the best interest of the child(ren).
This bill would put the kids first and mitigate costly, drawn out court battles.
Unfortunately, a vote on this bill is being blocked by Minnesota House Judiciary Chair Rep. Jamie Becker-Finn.
We are calling on our elected officials to vote on this important bill and put the children of Minnesota first.
Separated parents need to set aside differences and focus on the best interest of the child(ren).
Kids of all ages deserve clear and respectful communication between parents.
It is in the best interest of all children to feel safe and loved by both parents.
