No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would amend the Family Code to require a court to enter a possession order that provides for equal possession of a child each year unless the court does not appoint the parents as joint conservators or finds that it is not in the best interest of the child.
Based on information provided by the Office of Court Administration, no significant fiscal impact to the state court system is anticipated as a result from implementing the provisions of the bill.
