This is very exciting and will finally protect the visitation/parenting time rights of all parents. http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/2005_06/sum/hb968.htm
Go to the link above and click on the PDF version to read the current version. This House Bill will protect visitation (parenting time) from interference. Under current law, if mommy decides that she doesn't want Susie to visit with daddy, she risks nothing unless the father spends 110s of 1000s of dollars to document with an attorney, petition and try for a change of custody. It's a gamble and mommy only usually receives a slap on the wrist. The new law would punish offenders for interfering with custody/visitation AND would fine the local law enforcement a minimum of $1000 if they do not report the offense to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. This Bill has major teeth and some heads will spin and roll, should this Bill become Law. Predicted already: Mary Margaret Oliver, puller of many institutional strings, will cry wolf.
Visitation is such a loaded and ugly word that should be removed from domestic legal language. You visit distant family, old relatives, old friends and amusement parks. Individual parents, regardless of gender, actively nurture a child through parenting. How about ""Parenting time" as an alternative to "visitation"? Just another menthod for feminist social engineers have used language and law to set up the removal of men from the family.
