Minnesota Legislature Takes Long Step Towards Shared Parenting – but the Governor Vetoes

A path breaking shared parenting bill was recently passed by the Minnesota legislature. Two new requirements: 1) The bill (HF 322) requires a minimum of 35% of the parenting time for each parent; 2) the 35% minimum takes effect immediately, even for temporary custody orders. This immediate effect is important because temporary arrangements often become permanent: judges don’t want to change existing custody time because they think this might be disruptive to the children.

But on Thursday, 5/24/12, Governor Mark Dayton vetoed the bill by failing to sign it.
