HB 723 would amend section 33.003 of the Texas Family Code relating to Texas’ judicial bypass procedure which authorizes a minor to consent to her own abortion without parental notification or consent.

Current law requires the court to appoint a guardian ad litem for the minor. HB 723 would prohibit the court from appointing that guardian ad litem to serve as the minor’s attorney. It would also prohibit the court from appointing the minor’s attorney to be guardian ad litem for the minor.

STATUS

This provision is contained in HB 3819, which failed to pass in 2013.
