SB 820 passed and is effective 9/1/2011

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Recently I blogged that SB 820 was in the works, and it has now passed.

Let’s all hope that once it is in practice that it will provide a good groundwork for possession and access schedules for children under three years of age.

Here’s the link and history on the bill as passed: http://www.legis.state.tx.us/billlookup/History.aspx?LegSess=82R&Bill=SB820&Sort=A

Texas child possession & access orders for children under 3 years of age…change may be coming!

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

The Texas Legislature is in session, and Senate Bill 820 may result in more guidance to judges and attorneys in crafting possession and access schedules.  Essentially, it appears that the bill will amend the Texas Family Code by spelling out the relevant factors that a court must consider when making a possession order for children under three.  Let’s keep watch on this one, because if it passes then there may be both more guidance on the issue, as well as more uniformity across the state

I encourage you to read the bill here (http://www.capitol.state.tx.us/tlodocs/82R/billtext/pdf/SB00820F.pdf#navpanes=0)
