Issues

Every year sees a host of hot issues that threaten to harm the rights of parents and children. 2009 is no exception. These are some of the key legislative bills and legal issues that are we are focused on at the moment:

Disabled Veterans' Benefits

Misapplication of SSI and SSDI Benefits

Military Parents and Child Custody

Child Custody Evaluation Changes

Conflict Reduction Reform

Child Support Guideline Reform

Restraining Order Abuse

Domestic Violence Policy Reform

"Move Away" Changes

Paternity Fraud Reform

There are a huge number of 2009 bills moving through the California Assembly that may impact our families and children. CAFC actively monitors all these pieces of legislation. Moreover, we are actively involved in supporting and opposing these measures to ensure the best possible outcomes. This is very difficult and time consuming work, so your support is needed.
