A BILL TO BE ENTITLED AN ACT TO ENHANCE THE PROTECTION PROVIDED TO PERSONS MAKING IMPROVEMENTS TO LEASED REAL PROPERTY UNDER ARTICLE 3 OF CHAPTER 44A OF THE GENERAL STATUTES, AS RECOMMENDED BY THE LRC COMMITTEE ON MECHANICS LIENS AND LEASEHOLD IMPROVEMENTS, TO AMEND THE LAWS REGARDING INFORMATION PROVIDED TO NONCUSTODIAL PARENTS SUBJECT TO WAGE WITHHOLDING ORDERS UNDER THE LAWS PERTAINING TO CHILD SUPPORT, AND TO MAKE TECHNICAL CORRECTIONS TO THE UNIFORM DEPLOYED PARENTS CUSTODY AND VISITATION ACT.
Senate committee substitute makes the following changes to the 2nd edition:
Changes the short and long title.
Amends GS 110-136.3(a) regarding the required content of civil or criminal child support orders in IV-D cases. Clarifies that all child support orders must comply with each of the listed requirements. Amends (a)(4a) to provide that a IV-D child support order and a non-IV-D child support order containing an income withholding requirement must include the current residence and mailing address of the custodial parent or the child if those addresses are different. Current law provides that the requirement to include these addresses is not applicable when the court has determined that providing residence information is inappropriate because the party owing child support has made verbal or physical threats that constitute domestic violence under GS Chapter 50B. Further amends the subsection to clarify that the address of the custodial parent or the child is also not required to be contained in a child support order if there is an existing order prohibiting disclosure of the custodial parent or child's address to the party owing child support.
Amends GS 50A-370(a) and GS 50A-379(a), making a technical change, updating a federal statute reference.
Amends GS 50A-385(c) and GS 50A-388(a), making clarifying and organizational changes.
Section 2 of the act, concerning child support orders, will be effective January 1, 2015, applying to orders on or after that date. The remainder of the new provisions are effective when the act becomes law.
