The family law bill (SB1488/HB1851) from the TBA’s legislative package this session unanimously passed the House today. Proposed at the suggestion of the Family Law Section, the bill strengthens parental rights regarding custody orders, requires parenting plans to be notarized, and standardizes the child custody determination factors across the code. The bill is part of a diverse package of initiatives from the TBA, all of which appears to be headed to early passage. The package includes a statute of repose for legal malpractice, an overhaul of the Nonprofit Corporations Act, liability protection for partners in an LLP, and various changes in probate and trust law.
