“A lot of noncustodial moms are going through the same problems,” Stoddard said. “We’re going to see a revolution when more mothers are affected.”

Licensed clinical social worker Terry Gaspard of Providence, R.I., is concerned with damage that can be done to daughters who don’t have equal access to their dads after divorce. “A deep wound can be created,” said Gaspard, co-creator of the website movingpastdivorce.com.

An equally shared parenting bill passed in both the Minnesota House and Senate in 2012, but Gov. Dayton didn’t sign it into law, concerned about locking in equations particularly with “the most challenging divorces.”

The issue went nowhere in 2013, but isn’t dead yet. “I think the governor would be willing to get involved if supporters could get some traction with the Legislature and a compromise could be reached,” Dayton’s spokeswoman, Katharine Tinucci, said Thursday.

With the creation of LW4SP, traction is coming.
