Due to the patchwork of various laws across the country and consistent with its mission to harmonize state law, the Uniform Law Commission recently passed the Uniform Deployed Parents Custody and Visitation Act (UDPCVA), a uniform statute that states may adopt to govern child custody and visitation rights when a service member with children is deployed for military service. The Act includes provisions regarding custody and visitation rights during the deployment of a service member, addresses issues regarding a service member's delegation of custody rights, and establishes clear procedures for the resumption of the previous custody arrangement.
Two Minnesota attorneys who served as subject matter experts for the ULC's UDPCVA drafting committee, Kim Bonuomo, family law attorney and shareholder at Moss & Barnett, and Major Lyndsey Olson, General Counsel of the Minnesota National Guard will discuss the provisions of the UDPCVA and what effect passage of UDPCVA would have in Minnesota.
