When child custody battles cross state lines (interstate child custody), there are specific laws that apply. The Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act has been adopted by the states and governs such issues in a consistent way. Issues such as child support and visitation schedules may be different in a case like this. Our attorneys have experience in dealing with the complex issues that arise in these interstate cases and can help you navigate the complicated legal process of the UCCJEA.
