Stolar & Associates, A Professional Law Corporation: 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 went to war for me.

    “This Law firm is truly the best team I have ever had the pleasure of working with. They are worth every penny that you pay them and more. I hadn't seen my daughter in almost 2 years and they went to war for me. I mean it was crazy how hard they worked to get me my parental rights. Their team is so strong that my baby's mother's law firm had to send 3 lawyers just to battle one of Steven's well-trained lawyers. He fought off 3 soulless devils and finally won custody /visitation for me. Robert Curtis is a warrior in the courtroom and totally destroyed the evil lawyers that were trying their best to burn down my life. Anthony is an incredible lawyer too. He is just amazing support. Their assistant Jenny is the greatest thing next to being your mother because of the way that she sincerely cares about you during the process. I truly used to despise lawyers until I met Steven Stolar and his associates. They are like the Super Friends of Law Firms!!!!! Steven Stolar for Mayor!!!!!!!!!”
