The Judiciary Committee reports a favorable recommendation on S.B. 49, CHILD SUPPORT AMENDMENTS, by Senator L. Hillyard, with the following amendments:
1. Page 23, Line 700: After Line 700, insert:
"(5) There is a presumption that voluntary relinquishment or consent for termination of parental rights is not in the child's best interest where it appears to the court that the primary purpose is to avoid a financial support obligation. The presumption may be rebutted, however, if the court finds the relinquishment or consent to termination of parental rights will facilitate the establishment of stability and permanency for the child."
