Interstate Child Custody

Mission Viejo Child Custody Attorney

When the parents of children who are a part of a custody dispute or agreement live in different states, matters can become very complicated. The Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Act (UCCJA) was passed into law in 1997 and adopted in all 50 states to help settle disputes as to where child custody cases could be litigated and to simplify things for all parties concerned.

If you and your ex-spouse live in different states, it is extremely important that you are aware of the act and its effect on your custody arrangement. Failure to understand the act and its ramification could result in you losing your custody rights. At The Hunter Law Group, we are fully versed in the nuances and regulations that the act sets forth and can help you in your interstate custody situation.

Stay Informed About Custody Laws

Important to know is that if one custody case is pending in one state, another cannot be started in a different state. Depending on each parent's financial wherewithal, one or the other parent will be ordered to travel to facilitate custodial visitation.
