  • Summary date: Apr 3 2013 - More information

    Amends GS 50-13.2 (Who entitled to custody; terms of custody; visitation rights of grandparents; taking child out of State), changing title to Who entitled to custody; presumption of shared parenting; terms of custody; visitation rights of grandparents; taking child out of State. Provides that there is a presumption that shared parenting is in the best interest of the child. This presumption can be rebutted by the greater weight of the evidence. Defines shared parenting as each parent sharing, as close as possible, an equal amount of time with the child.
