Proposed bill would keep custody rights for soldiers returning from service

By: Carla Jimenez, Kentucky New Era

When a soldier returns from deploying overseas, he or she sometimes faces a change in custody or visitation rights for his or her children. But State Rep. John Tilley, D-Hopkinsville, wants to change that.

Tilley is sponsoring legislation for the 2013 regular legislative session that would amend Kentucky’s child custody laws. House Bill 69 would keep a service member’s custody or visitation rights the same when they return from service.
