Creates legislation and monitors proposals in the Legislature. Members work with our lobbyist advising legislators and staff and testifying before the Legislature.
The Legislation Committee of the Family Law Section’s primary mission is to further the best interest of Florida’s families through the active involvement in the legislative process and the creation or amendment of statutes that apply to marital and family law. This includes commenting and advising on proposed legislation and improving and/or clarifying existing law. The Committee monitors proposed legislation pertaining to or otherwise affecting marital and family law on behalf of the Section and lends its expertise to provide technical assistance and information to the Legislature to advance marital and family law. Where necessary, the Committee will lobby on behalf of the Section in support of or in opposition to proposed legislation unless prohibited by the Board of Governors of The Florida Bar.
