Do you want to help? Here are 3 easy steps
1. Let us know that you want to lead a Virtual Visitation Bill effort in your state. Send us an email with the state statute so that we may create a pre-draft bill with the required wording. Also let us know the name of your local representative and/or senator that you will discuss the bill proposal with.
2. Setup an appointment to talk with them about the Bill. We will join over a call if you like to answer the hard questions and provide support. We will also provide you with the needed paperwork to support and encourage they suppurt the bill. It is one of the few family law improvements that passes with ease. Every legislator needs an easy bill to promote their reputation, so don’t be shy in asking.
3. If they agree to sponsor a bill, it is just about following up with the pre-draft bill being turned into a proposed bill and monitoring the activiity. We will provide everything the legislators need to promote the bill in a nice binder.
That is all their is to it, other than LOTS of waiting. It will take up about 40 hours of your time over several months.
So help make a difference and help us get bills passed!
