Congressman Michael Turner

Representing the 10th District of Ohio

Military Child Custody Rights

For the last several years, Congressman Turner has successfully led the fight to ensure that the parental rights of our service men and women are protected. 

Congressman Turner was honored to author, champion, and successfully fight to include a national standard of protection in the 2015 National Defense Bill that makes certain service members will not lose custody of their children because they have served or might deploy as part of their military service. 

Servicemembers risk their lives in support of military operations that keep our nation safe. They should never be penalized for serving their country.
