Legislation to protect individuals filing for divorce from abusive spouses by allowing courts to dissolve a marriage at any time after the individual has petitioned for divorce has unanimously passed the state House. State Representative Chuck Moseley, of Portage, says the current law prohibits a court from conducting a final hearing or entering a summary dissolution decree earlier than 60 days after a petition or counter petition has been filed.
“This bill protects the rights of women in divorce cases by offering them additional protection from their abusive husbands, as well as extending this protection to any children in these homes,” said Moseley.
The bill will expedite the process of divorce cases where one party has been found guilty of committing crimes of domestic violence or child abuse.
Moseley, who co-authored House Bill 1014, says he believes the protection offered in this legislation to victims of domestic violence will go a long way toward curbing domestic violence cases. The bill now moves to the state Senate for further consideration.
