Current Bill Summary

SB 360 - This act requires that orders of protection issued by another state or country be certified to be enforced in this state. The act also deletes the current requirement that such orders of protection be registered in Missouri, in order to make our statutes consistent with federal "full faith and credit" provisions. The current law requiring registration has the practical effect of notifying a court-identified abuser of the victim's relocation to Missouri.
