DIGEST OF HB 1065 (Updated March 6, 2012 4:10 pm - DI 84)


Military custody and parenting time matters. Requires a court, upon motion by a parent who has received military temporary duty, deployment, or mobilization orders: (1) to hold an expedited hearing to determine or modify custody or parenting time; and (2) to allow, with reasonable notice, a parent to present testimony and evidence by certain electronic means in a custody or parenting time proceeding; if the military duties of a parent have a material effect on the parent's ability to appear in person at a regularly scheduled hearing concerning custody or parenting time. Allows a court, upon motion by a parent who has received military deployment orders, to delegate the parent's parenting time, or a part of the parent's parenting time, during the time that the parent is deployed to a person who has a close and substantial relationship with the parent's child, if the court determines delegating the time is in the best interests of the child. Provides that an order delegating parenting time automatically terminates after the parent returns from deployment. Allows the court to terminate an order delegating parenting time if the court determines that the delegated parenting time is no longer in the best interests of the child.
