Bill Caption

Relating to the qualifications for a person conducting an adoption evaluation.

Fiscal Notes

From the LBB: No significant fiscal implication to the state is anticipated. 

Bill Analysis

This bill would allow an otherwise qualified contractor with a domestic relations office to conduct adoption evaluations for that office.

Vote Recommendation Notes

This bill would help remedy potential staffing problems unintentionally created in a 2015 overhaul of the family code by clarifying that contractors of a domestic relations office are able to conduct adoption evaluations, thus making the adoption process go faster. This represents a lightening of regulatory burden, therefore we support this bill.
