We must bring to your attention the presentation of the Shared Parenting Bill by Mr Brian Binley MP on 13 July 2010.
More information can be seen via theyworkforyou.com website at http://www.theyworkforyou.com/debates/?id=2010-07-13a.812.3 and can be followed at the parliament.uk website by clicking http://services.parliament.uk/bills/2010-11/sharedparentingorders.html
He was supported in the bill by MP’s Dr Thérèse Coffey, Mr Douglas Carswell, Mr Philip Hollobone, Mr Christopher Chope, Mr Peter Bone, Mark Reckless, Caroline Dinenage, Mark Pritchard, Harriett Baldwin and Mr David Nuttall
Although not confirmed by Mr Binley yet, the draft text indicates that these would be new Court Orders that would need to be applied for, rather than an actual legal presumption of Shared Parenting without the need for confirmation by a judge.
We as an organisation greatly welcome this bill, and hope it gains the support it so justly deserves.
