Interstate Custody Cases
An interstate custody case oftentimes is made more complicated if a determination of jurisdiction (choice of applicable state law to apply) has to be made. An attorney who specializes in interstate child custody can help you understand the law and your rights.
Contention of custody in an interstate case is subject to time limitations. When a child is out of state against the will of the custodial parent, that parent may have limited time and options to recover the child. Moving a child out of state without consent is a violation of your custodial parent rights, the rights of your child, and the law.
