The laws in California are not set in stone. As times change, lawmakers can take action to change them. Perhaps no area of law has seen as much change in the past few years as family law. As a result, there are five bills currently under consideration by state lawmakers.
One of those bills, AB2034, concerns the rights of adult children when it comes to visiting a parent who is married to someone other than the child’s other parent. This matter was recently in the news when Casey Kasem’s children struggled to see their ailing father in his last days, against the wishes of their stepmother. The law would make it possible for grown children to file a petition seeking visitation rights of parents who are dependent or possibly abused.
