Under a bill under consideration by the New Hampshire Legislature, Judges would be required to explain in writing what evidence they used in making child custody decisions. The House Children and Family Law Committee voted unanimously to support the amended bill last week after months of deliberations and heated exchanges between father's rights groups and advocates for children and domestic abuse victims. The decision must be based on a preponderance of the evidence and be in writing. The legislation will go to the House floor in January, and if it passes, will move on to the Senate. Source.
