SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

Custody and visitation agreements; best interests of the child. Requires the court to consider any history of abuse of persons other than family members when determining the best interests of the child for the purposes of custody and visitation arrangements. The bill removes the requirement that in order for a court, on the basis of certain offenses, to enjoin a parent from filing a custody or visitation petition, the victim of the offense must have been his child, a child with whom he resided at the time, or the other parent of the child.
