What Does Assembly Bill 939 Mean For You? (Part 2)

Assembly Bill 939 lays out major changes to California family law, including changes to the laws surrounding child testimony. While it’s important to acknowledge the positive effects some of these new laws will surely have, Ron and Robert are left wondering whether anyone has considered the children. What’s going to happen to children who are called to testify against a parent in a divorce case? How do we know children won’t lie to protect one parent over the other? What about the trauma caused to children who are forced to choose between parents? How will these new laws affect today’s children later in life?

These are just some of the questions raised in today’s episode of Ron and Robert on Divorce. Listen now and tell us what you think.

What Does Assembly Bill 939 Mean for You?

Family Law touches the innermost aspects of a Californian’s life. It determines how often a parent will see his or her child, how much support they will receive, how they’ll be protected from domestic violence, and more.  Last month the governor signed Assembly Bill 939 and as a result, we’re looking at profound changes to the legislature after the first of the year. These changes will significantly impact members of the family law bar, the bench, and the public.  Listen now as Ron and Robert talk about what this important bill means for you.
