BILL SUMMARY For LLS 22-0691: UNIFORM UNREGULATED CHILD CUSTODY TRANSFER ACT

JOINT COMMITTEE COMMITTEE ON COLORADO COMMISSION ON UNIFORM STATE LAWS
Date Jan 14, 2022      
Location HCR 0107



LLS 22-0691: Uniform Unregulated Child Custody Transfer Act - To be drafted as a Commission Bill


10:01:40 AM  

Commissioner Love summarized that at the last meeting Commissioner Scott was opposed to moving the act forward and it was decided to allow time for her and Commissioner Duran to contact interested parties from child protection and adoption agencies on the act. Commissioner McGihon indicated that the U.S. State Department is very interested in having the act adopted among the states to help it address some of the child protection issues it encounters.

       Commissioner Gardner suggested the commission move the act forward to focus more attention on it to engage interested parties. Commissioner Levy recalled that at the December meeting the CBA Family Law Section stated that it did not have an interest in the act as it did not affect their area of law. She agreed with moving the act forward as it addresses some pressing child protection issues. In addition, the act was not considered controversial at the annual meeting.

      Commissioner Gardner moved the commission proceed with drafting and seeking sponsors for the introduction of the Uniform Unregulated Child Custody Transfer Act. Commissioners Levy and Love seconded and the motion passed without objection.
