SCOTX Releases New Opinion Regarding Modifications
June 26, 2020
OPINION OF THE COURT (J. Bland)
CONCURRING OPINION (J. Lehrmann)
The Supreme Court released an opinion in In Re C.J.C.
The Court grants mandamus, and Justice Bland writing for the Court holds that because a fit parents presumptively acts in the best interest of their children and have a “fundamental right to make decisions concerning the care, custody, and control of that child,” the fit parent presumption applies to modifications.
