The most IMPORTANT Bill in over a decade for non-custodial parent – HB5425 (Minimum Parenting Time and Parenting Plans)  has moved forward.

This is the BILL the ISBA hates and has been attempting to sabotage (Because HB5425 will take custody fights out of the process.  Remember, fights mean lawyers get rich.  They want fights over your children.).  But thanks to all your calls in the last 2 weeks (and I am told there were lots), HB5425 today left the Rules Committee today and will be before the Judiciary Committee at 8:30 AM, on Thursday, March 13, 2014.

We NEED as many people as possible in Springfield.  Call in sick.  Arrange car pools.  If you cannot go, chip in $20 (or any amount you can) or whatever to those who want to go – remember, many of our advocates are dead broke fighting in the court system to just get minimum time with their kids.

But there is still much work to be done.  You NEED to CALL every member of the Judiciary Committee.  Tell them to support HB5425.  Tell them to co-sponsor HB5425.  If they waiver or seem to be against it, ask them what their reservations are.  Be firm.  Do not take no for an answer.  Have every friend and family member call.  All those grandparents out there need to call the other grandparents to have all grandparents call.  If you live out of State, you may still have an interest in this Bill.  (Lots of grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc., live out of State and they are affected by the stupidity of the current practice in family court.)

Please forward this email to as many as possible.

Here is the link to the Judiciary Committee.  Click on it.  Click on every member.   Call.  Hunt them down.   http://www.ilga.gov/house/committees/members.asp?committeeID=1192
