New Child Custody Bills 2015 - 02-10

There are two new custody bills today:

  1. HB 474 is entitled "Family Law - Grandparent Visitation."  The text of the bill is not yet posted.  The synopsis:  "Altering the circumstances under which an equity court may grant visitation rights to the grandparent of a child."
  2. SB 650 is entitled "Family Law - Rebuttable Presumption of Joint Custody."  The text of the bill is not yet posted.  The synopsis:  "Creating a rebuttable presumption in certain court proceedings that specified custodial arrangements are in the best interests of the child; and authorizing the court to grant sole custody under specified circumstances."

I'll post more information when the texts of the bills are posted, probably sometime today.
