Measure Title: RELATING TO FAMILY COURTS.
Report Title: Family Courts; Sex Offenders; Murderers; Custody and Visitation; Significant Risk; Rebuttable Presumption; Disclosure of Information; Best Interests
Description: Amends provisions relating to criteria and procedures in family court determinations regarding custody and visitation rights. Clarifies that a parent's felony conviction for a violent or sexual offense in which the victim was a minor, or requirement to register as a sex offender, raises a rebuttable presumption that custody or visitation by that parent is not in the best interest of the child. Establishes that a person who is granted unsupervised contact with a child and who is required to register as a sex offender as a result of a felony conviction in which the victim was a minor constitutes prima facie evidence that the child is at significant risk. Requires courts to state reasons for findings in writing or on the record, including specific findings that there is no risk to the child's health, safety, and welfare. Takes effect 8/26/2050. (SD1)
