Arizona Multistate Child Custody Litigation Lawyers
When parents in a divorce or child custody dispute reside in different states, this creates additional jurisdictional issues that must be addressed. Most important is determining what state laws and what state court will govern the outcome of a child custody and child support case. If you and your former spouse reside in different states, you require a family law attorney experienced and knowledgeable in multi-state child custody and support litigation.

Jurisdiction Under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA)
Every family law or divorce dispute must be brought forth to the proper jurisdiction. This is a highly critical issue because if not resolved in the proper jurisdiction, a court can later find improper jurisdiction and order the case be remanded to the proper jurisdiction. This wastes both time and resources. That is why it is so important that you hire an attorney skilled and knowledgeable with multi-state jurisdictional issues.
While every case is different and requires a thorough and complete analysis by an attorney, the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) helps to determine jurisdiction in multi-state cases. According to the UCCJEA, a court only has jurisdiction if the child has resided in the particular state for at least six months. Often the issue of what constitutes “residing” is in dispute. We will help you obtain proper jurisdiction for your particular case as well as provide exceptional and skilled family law litigation representation.
