NO FISCAL IMPACT
February 9, 1999
Janis Baron (303-866-3523)
TITLE: CONCERNING THE AUTOMATIC TEMPORARY INJUNCTION IN A PETITION FOR DISSOLUTION OF MARRIAGE.
Summary of Assessment
The bill requires a petition for dissolution of marriage or legal separation to contain the provisions of the automatic temporary injunction that go into effect when the petition for dissolution of marriage or legal separation is filed, along with a written acknowledgment by the petitioner that he or she has received a copy of, has read, and understands the automatic temporary injunction.
The bill adds a component to the automatic temporary injunction that goes into effect when a petition for dissolution of marriage or legal separation is filed wherein the temporary injunction restrains both parties from discontinuing or changing the terms of any life, health, or automobile insurance coverage where the parties or their children are included in the coverage or are beneficiaries. The bill is effective upon signature of the Governor, and the act shall apply to petitions for dissolution of marriage or legal separation filed on or after July 1, 1999.
The bill is assessed as having no fiscal impact. The bill does not mandate new requirements on the Judicial Branch and will not impact the courts' workload.
