SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - The so-called shared parenting bill passed the South Dakota House yesterday and awaits Governor Daugaard’s signature.

Bill advocate Grant Halmond calls the bill a compromise but says it provides a judicial roadmap.

The bill provides that in a contested request for joint custody the court shall consider whether one parent has denied, without just cause, the child the opportunity for continuing contact with the other parent.

The bill unanimously passed the State Senate and only two House members voted against the co-parenting bill.
