Current Bill Summary

SB 1110 - Under current law, any order or judgment entered by a court concerning child protection takes precedence over any previous court order concerning the status or custody of a child for as long as the new court order remains in effect. This act adds orders of guardianships to the list of prior orders concerning the status or custody of a child over which a new court order shall take precedence.

Additionally, under this act, any court exercising jurisdiction over a juvenile in specified cases shall have the authority to: (1) enter an order placing the juvenile into the legal and physical custody of a parent, (2) enter a child support order, (3) establish rights of visitation, and (4) establish paternity. Any custody, support, or visitation order entered by this court shall remain in effect after the termination of the underlying juvenile court proceeding only if the court's order expressly states that such order shall be continuing, and shall remain so until replaced with a subsequent order. If the court terminates jurisdiction without entering a continuing custody, support, or visitation order, the previous custody or visitation order shall be restored.

This act is substantially similar to HB 2624 (2016).
