Utah Lawyers Helping With Multi-State Custody Issues

It is not uncommon for parents in a custody matter to be residing in different states. This can be a complicated legal issue if not handled properly or by an attorney experienced with multi-state child custody issues. Establishing jurisdiction when determining child custody is very important as it has to be done right the first time. Otherwise, a judge could later find jurisdiction was improper and the entire child custody case must be heard in a different and proper jurisdiction.

Establishing Proper Jurisdiction And Multi-State Custody

We will go over the facts of your situation, address your concerns and explain how visitation could work for your multi-state custody case. Our attorneys are knowledgeable with laws that apply to multi-state family law issues, including the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA). This body of law helps to determine what jurisdiction a custody case will be determined in as well as other determining factors.

Courts often look at how long each parent has resided in each state and how long the child has resided in a state. The best interests of the child is always top priority no matter what the specific circumstance.
