Mark Ludwig is the executive director of Americans for Equal Shared Parenting (AFESP). This group was started by Mark out of the need to be the best parent he could be to his son, Levi. After going through his own experience and learning of other parents that had been relegated to weekend visitors, he decided to use his background in politics to effect change in the current Family Court system.
Mark has personally met with over 420 legislators across the country to discuss the need for equal Shared Parenting. In 2018 alone, he traveled to 38 cities across the country and worked with leaders in 24 different states. He started the organization with a goal of educating, enabling and empowering leaders across the country to help raise awareness of the need to pass legislation for equal shared parenting giving children equal access to both of their fit, willing, and able parents after divorce or separation.
