Interstate Child Custody Disputes

When Custody Cases Cross State Lines

Child custody is very often the most highly emotionally charged aspect of a divorce or separation. It is also an area of family law with the greatest long-term consequences. Maintaining or weakening parent-child relationships will have a lifelong impact on the nature of one's family ties over a lifetime. As you are navigating challenges associated with child custody and visitation arrangements after a separation from your spouse or partner, you are wise to seek counsel from an experienced custody attorney. At Stolar Law Group, our custody lawyers will always keep your best interests in mind.

STOLAR LAW GROUP: OFFERING CLEAR DIRECTION & GUIDANCE

If there is an interstate aspect to your child custody dispute, the stakes may be even higher than when both parents are in California. While our firm cannot promise to remove the painful dilemmas associated with an interstate or international child custody dispute, we can offer clear direction. We can provide you with effective advocacy focused on those principles most important to you: protecting your children's well-being and your relationship with them.

We can discuss the best course of action in situations such as:

  • You have primary custody and your ex-spouse / partner has visitation rights - You have a compelling reason for moving out of state, such as to further your education. You believe it is in your children's long-term best interests, and you wish to negotiate less-frequent visitation with the other parent to allow your child to move with you.
  • The other parent has primary custody and you see your child on a scheduled basis - The other parent wants to move out of state. You do not want to lose the time you spend with your child. You want to petition for primary custody, with periodic visits.
  • You or your former spouse or partner recently moved to California - You have an urgent need to revise custody orders that were issued in another state.
  • You wish to prevent or intercept a potential parental kidnapping scenario that is unfolding or may soon occur, involving one parent in California - You need an attorney to establish emergency jurisdiction and address child custody enforcement or negotiate a child custody modification as soon as possible.

The Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) was enacted to resolve interstate child custody disputes so that all states will cooperate with the original custody order. Simply put, when the court in one state makes a custody order, the other state is not allowed to modify to turn over the order.

  • They did a great job

    Steven and his team moved right in on a matter involving a close friend who was in very serious trouble. I was very impressed with the thoroughness and thoughtfulness displayed. Although they came in on an emergency basis, they did a great job.
