STAND. COM. REP. NO. 3165
RE: S.B. No. 2665
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2020
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Judiciary, to which was referred S.B. No. 2665 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO CHILD SUPPORT ENFORCEMENT,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to establish that every judgment for child support is enforceable until paid in full.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from one individual.
Your Committee finds that existing law provides that a judgment for child support is presumed to be paid and discharged on the thirty-third birthday of the child or ten years after a judgment for the child support was rendered, whichever date is later. This measure amends the law to ensure that child support judgments are enforceable until paid in full.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Judiciary that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2665 and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary,
KARL RHOADS, Chair
