NEW LAW ON CUSTODY RIGHTS FOR MILITARY FAMILIES PASSED

A new law, by State Assemblyman Paul Cook, deals with custody rights of military children. Reporter Dan Stork explains…
A bill authored by Assemblyman Paul Cook’s (Republican of Yucca Valley) which deals with the custody rights of military parents, was signed into law by Governor Brown. When a divorced couple shares custody of a child and one of the parents is deployed due to military orders, full custody of the child is given temporarily to the non-deployed parent. Often, when the deployed parent returns, a custody battle ensues. AB 1807 protects the parental rights of those deployed and provides that the original child custody agreement will be reinstated post-deployment. In shepherding the bill through the legislature, Cook worked with an organization called Fathers and Families. In 2010, Cook worked with Fathers and Families to get an earlier law passed which provided assistance to military parents with child custody issues. Paul Cook said, “The last thing military parents should be worrying about when deployed is a custody battle when they return home.”
