Senate Gives Initial Approval To Changes In Child Support Law
The Senate has given initial approval to a bill that would give people the opportunity to have an evidentiary hearing if they are behind on child support payments and lose their driver’s or professional license as a result. State Senator Karla May, a Democrat from St. Louis, is the bill sponsor.
The bill would also award equal parenting time to each parent. It can be rebutted if the court finds that the parents have reached an agreement or if there’s a pattern of domestic violence that has occurred. The bill still requires another vote of approval in order to move to the Missouri House of Representatives for another look.
