HARRISBURG – The PA Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously approved Senate Bill 78, known as Kayden’s Law. The bi-partisan measure is named for Kayden Mancuso, a 7-year-old from Bucks County, who was killed in August 2018 by her biological father during a court-ordered, unsupervised visit granted following a year-long custody dispute. The legislation makes a fundamental change to PA’s child custody law by requiring a court to consider certain critical factors to ensure that the health and safety of children are weighed before custody of a child is awarded to any party or parties.
