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.
