SB2324 by Duncan (Relating to the classification of certain types of marital property in regards to claims for payment of a criminal restitution judgment.), Committee Report 2nd House, Substituted
The bill would amend the Family Code relating to the classification of certain types of marital property in regards to claims for payment of a criminal restitution judgment. The bill would add a subsection to the Family Code making all retirement allowances, annuities, accumulated contributions, optional benefits, and money in the various retirement system accounts of the state community property and not subject to a criminal restitution judgment as it relates to the nonparticipant spouse. To the extent the bill modifies the income eligible to be pursued in a criminal restitution judgment, the rules change is not anticipated to increase the workload of the court system. The bill would take effect September 1, 2009.
