Got this request from Guillermo of http://www.crcsandiego.org requesting that we contact our Congressman on getting this resolution passed for joint custody laws. In the past, States have past laws on these resolutions and now we need to get this past to help us get in the door for EQUAL shared parenting laws. Please take a few minutes to cut and paste the letter below and get it sent to your Congressman and Senators. If you don’t know them, there is a link below that will allow you to find them by zip code.
Go make this happen today!
1 THE JOINT CUSTODY RESOLUTION. H. Con. Res. 241. We ask you to please
contact your House member and ask him/her to co-sponsor the Resolution. One
phone call or fax or letter is not enough. You must do this every few
weeks. Reason? They have many items on their plates, and they need
reminders that this Resolution — which asks the states to pass more joint
custody laws — is important to you. Teresa O’Halloren, CRC of Oregon, and
Mike Doherty, CRC of Illinois, are taking the lead in this effort. Please
talk with them or me. Again, House members only. Capitol Hill switchboard
Sample letter of fax:
FAX NUMBER (obtain by calling 202/225-3121 and ask for House member’s
office, and try to get name of staffer who would handle joint custody
Name of House member
Washington, D.C. 20515
Attn.: (Staff Member, if you have such a name)
Please co-sponsor H. Con. Res. 241, which asks the states to pass
more joint custody laws. Parents with joint custody pay more child support.
And there is protection in the resolution for victims of violence and abuse.
Please let me know if you will co-sponsor this resolution.
