SB 525 - This act requires the clerk of a court, when the court finds by a preponderance of the evidence that a party is responsible for child abuse or neglect, to send a certified copy of the judgment or order to the Children's Division. Upon receipt of the order, the Children's Division shall list the individual as a perpetrator of child abuse or neglect in the central registry.
