LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 161, Campos. Restraining orders.
Existing law requires a court in a proceeding for dissolution of marriage or legal separation of the parties to issue a temporary restraining order enjoining both parties from cashing, borrowing against, canceling, transferring, disposing of, or changing the beneficiaries of any insurance or other coverage held for the benefit of the parties and their child or children, for whom support may be ordered. Existing law also authorizes a court in a domestic violence proceeding to issue ex parte protective orders, as specified.
This bill would specifically authorize, on and after July 1, 2014, a court in a domestic violence proceeding to issue an ex parte order restraining any party from cashing, borrowing against, canceling, transferring, disposing of, or changing the beneficiaries of any insurance or other coverage held for the benefit of the parties, or their child or children, if any, for whom support may be ordered, or both.
