Rep. Runestad seeks public input on child custody reforms State Rep. Jim Runestad has scheduled two meetings to gather public input on proposed child custody reforms.

Runestad, chair of the House Judiciary Committee, is working on legislation establishing shared custody with equal parenting time as the starting point for all child custody deliberations in Michigan.

“I want to get as much input as possible from people involved with the family court system throughout our state, including parents, attorneys and other experts,” said Runestad, of White Lake.

“This information will allow me to move forward and make meaningful reforms that improve child custody laws in Michigan.”

Public meetings will be at the following times and locations: ·

Monday, Aug. 21 at Studio D2D, 401 Hall St. SW in Grand Rapids, from 6 to 8 p.m. ·

Tuesday, Aug. 22 at Antonio’s Cucina Italiana, 2220 N. Canton Center Road in Canton, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Anyone unable to attend one of the meetings is encouraged to contact Runestad’s office at (517) 373-2616 or email
