Our study conducted for the National Parents Organization and Wisconsin for Children and Families was featured in an article for the Chippewa Herald. In November 2020 we polled 520 adults in Wisconsin on their opinions about parenting and their opinions regarding legislature focusing on “a change in Wisconsin law to create “a rebuttable presumption that shared parenting is in the best interest of a child after parental separation.”

Our survey in Wisconsin also found that a vast majority of those surveyed believe that for a child’s well-being they should maintain an equal amount of time spent with both parents, with 97% saying as much.96% responded that after a divorce children should spend equal amounts of time with both parents.

The study we conducted in Connecticut found that “When asked whether children are best served by procedures that allow them to develop a “parenting plan without hiring lawyers, filing any motions, or arguing in front of a judge,” 80% of both men and women said “yes.” Should a child have a significant amount of time with each fit and willing parent? Over 95% say this arrangement is extremely or very beneficial!”
