The important part of the bill is here: (a) There is no presumption for or
against joint physical custody, except when domestic abuse, as defined in section 518B.01,
has occurred between the parents.
And here: Disagreement alone over whether to grant sole or joint custody
does not constitute an inability of parents to cooperate in the rearing of their children
as referenced in paragraph (b), clause (1).
And, finally, here: A modification of parenting time which increases a parent’s percentage of parenting time to an amount that is between 45.1 to 54.9 percent parenting time is not a restriction of the other parent’s parenting time.
This bill has been referred to the Minnesota State Legislature Civil Law Committee. As of March 6, there is not yet a senate version.
