Thank you, Ron Nelson, for alerting family lawyers about the progress in Congress with respect to the proposed federal legislation "Servicemember Family 'Protection' Act," H.R. 4201. According to Mr. Nelson, the U.S. House last night passed H.R. 4201, the Servicemember Family Protection Act by a 390–2 vote. You may track that legislation at this link.
The American Bar Association opposes this bill. Mark Sullivan and Trish Apy are the ABA members who assembled the materials for the ABA Family Law Section and testified before Congress against the bill. Their White Paper opposing the legislation may be read here. It is a must read.
The bill now proceeds to the Senate side.
Hat tip to Ronald W. Nelson
