So-called anti-sharia legislation may still become Florida law

A Florida legislative committee has voted 5-4 on what is called the "anti-sharia" law. What this means is that SB 58 could still become law. If passed, it would prevent Florida courts from applying foreign laws in divorce and child custody dispute. It appears that the bill is mostly designed to prevent couples from using the Quran when making arguments in courts.

U.S. Supreme court decision on international child custody matter

The United States Supreme Court had it's say in an international child custody matter by overturning the ruling of a Florida court. The Supreme Court ruled unanimously that American courts are able to have input in international child custody battles, and that American courts do have the right to rule upon the merits of the case.

The measure allows the United States to ratify an international treaty where participating nations would cooperate to prevent non-custodial parents from avoiding paying their child support obligations after fleeing to other countries.
