SUMMARY AS PASSED SENATE: (all summaries)

Child support for disabled child over the age of 18 (Conner's Law). Provides that a court may order child support for any child over the age of 18 who is severely and permanently mentally or physically disabled if such disability existed prior to the child's reaching the age of 18 or the age of 19 if the child was a full-time high school student, not self-supporting, and was living in the home of the parent seeking child support. Current requirements that the child also be unable to live independently, unable to support himself, and reside in the home of the parent seeking child support remain unchanged. The bill also provides that an individual who was denied such support prior to July 1, 2015, is eligible to petition the court for support for a disabled child. This bill incorporates SB 957 and is identical to HB 2383.
