When Child Custody Becomes Interstate Custody

Interstate custody applies when a divorced parent moves out of the state where the child custody provision was determined and files for custody in the new state. In such cases, state laws, federal and perhaps international law may come into play confusing and complicating the custody issue.

Interstate Custody Legal Recourse

If you are facing an interstate custody issue you should consult with a San Elizario family law attorney who handles these cases. The lawyer can explain the jurisdictional issues, protect your child custody rights, and assess if challenging the new custody issue could prevail. If you choose to fight, the lawyer can prepare and file the necessary documents with the court.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?

  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

How to Find the Right Attorney

  • Determine the area of law that relates to your issue. Attorneys specialize in specific practice areas around legal issues within the broad field of law.
  • Seek out recommendations from friends, family, and colleagues. A successful attorney or practice will typically have many satisfied clients.
