Family Law Reform Bill Could Put Mothers & Children at Risk

Florida Senate Bill 250, also known as the Family Law Reform Bill, imposes a new 50/50 child-time sharing statute. This applies to all divorce cases and can be challenged through lengthy and costly litigation. The FBC supports the American Academy of Pediatrics recommendations of exclusive breastfeeding for infants up to six months, followed by continued breastfeeding as complementary foods are introduced for one year or longer. Compliance with a legislated 50/50 time-sharing premise compromises a mother’s ability to meet such vital recommendations.
