House Bill 3118: Grandparent Visitation

Author:
Rep. Joe Brown (D-73)

Summary:
This bill would have deleted the safeguards in current law authorizing the family court to order grandparent visitation. We think the current safeguards are insufficient and that parents, not a family court judge, should determine whether grandparents visit with the child. This legislative proposal would have made the law worse than it is.

Status:
This bill is currently in the House Judiciary Committee.

06/03/2004This bill died when the Legislature adjourned

Requested Action:
None at this time.

HSLDA's Position:
This change should be opposed.
