AN ACT TO CLARIFY WHEN SUBSEQUENT COURT ORDERS WILL SUPERSEDE SIMILAR PROVISIONS IN DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PROTECTIVE ORDERS, AS RECOMMENDED BY THE NORTH CAROLINA COURTS COMMISSION.
House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition.
Modifies the proposed changes to GS 50B-7 to provide that any subsequent order under GS Chapters 50 (Divorce and Alimony) or 110 (Child Welfare) supersedes similar provisions in prior protective orders issued pursuant to GS Chapter 50B (Domestic Violence) (previously, did not specify precedence over prior GS Chapter 50B orders, only GS Chapter 50B protective orders). No longer specifies that the superseding orders relate to child custody, child and spousal support, and possession of property issued under GS Chapters 50 and 110. Changes the act's effective date to now apply to orders in effect on or after August 1, 2020 (was, December 1, 2020).
