AN ACT TO PROMOTE THE ENCOURAGEMENT OF PARENTING TIME WITH CHILDREN BY BOTH PARENTS.
Amends GS 50-13.2 to change the section heading to Who entitled to custody; presumed shared responsibility; terms of custody; visitation rights of grandparents; taking child out of State; visitation by electronic communication. Deletes current (a) and instead provides the policy and the mission of the state in regards to child custody by highlighting five focus areas, including encouraging focused, good faith, best interest, and child-centered joint parenting agreement development and encouraging both parents to share equitably in the rights and responsibilities of raising their child.
