The Uniform Law Commission (formerly known as the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws) has appointed a drafting committee to “prepare an act that provides standards and procedures for resolving visitation and custody issues affecting military personnel and their families, which may include resolution of matters in intrastate, interstate, and international contexts.”  Professor Paul Kurtz (Georgia) chairs the committee and Professor Maxine Eichner (North Carolina) is serving as Reporter.  The committee will have its first meeting this spring, and is expected to have a draft ready for first reading by the ULC in 2011.  Background materials  are available on the ULC web site.
