Martin military child custody bill signed into law

The Governor today signed H1634, Rep. Martin’s bill to protect the child custody rights of servicemembers. A May 29 Charlotte Observer article highlighted the troubles servicemembers face in an article about a mother serving in the National Guard facing loss of custody of her children (“Mom’s choice: Her country or her child”).

The Winston-Salem Journal wrote an editorial in support of the bill, noting that “When duty calls and those in the military are deployed, they risk life, limb and the loss of considerable income. They shouldn’t risk losing custody of their children, too.”
